Buhari Has Not Endorsed N30,000 Minimum Wage – Presidency by nwakibie3(m): 8:10am On Nov 07
The Presidency has frowned at the misinterpretation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s remarks when he received the report of the Tripartite Committee on the Review of National Minimum Wage from the committee’s chairman, Ama Pepple, on Tuesday.

A presidential source, who preferred not to be named, said the president did not endorse N30,000 as proposed by committee as being reported by some sections of the media.

He, however, stated that President Buhari had expressed his commitment to ensuring the implementation of a new National Minimum Wage. “But the president’s speech at the event was immediately made available to the media and nowhere indicated that the president endorsed N30,000 Minimum wage. “It is not the duty of the president only to endorse a new national minimum wage. The process involves the Federal Executive Council (FEC), the National Economic Council (NEC) and the National Assembly. “It is imperative for us to always avoid misinterpreting a written speech,’’ he added. At the submission of the report of the Tripartite Committee that negotiated a new minimum wage with labour and other stakeholders, President Buhari pledged that the Federal Government would soon transmit an Executive bill (on National Minimum Wage) to the National Assembly for its passage within the shortest possible time. He said: “Our plan is to transmit the Executive bill to the National Assembly for its passage within the shortest possible time.

“I am fully committed to having a new National Minimum Wage Act in the very near future.’’ Buhari also expressed delight that the committee had successfully completed its assignment in a peaceful and non-controversial manner. “Let me use this opportunity to recognise the leadership of the organised labour and private sector as well as representatives of State and Federal Governments for all your hard work. “The fact that we are here today, is a notable achievement. “As the Executive Arm commences its review of your submission, we will continue to engage you all in closing any open areas presented in this report. “I, therefore, would like to ask for your patience and understanding in the coming weeks.” The President, however, enjoined the leadership of the labour unions as well as the Nigerian workers to avoid being used as political weapons. “May I therefore, employ workers and their leaders not to allow themselves to be used as political weapons,’’ he said. In her remarks, Pepple explained that the recommendation made by the committee was predicated on the high cost of living, occasioned by the exchange rate as well as the rising inflation rate in the country. She said that the committee also considered micro-economic indicators including the revenue and expenditure profile of the government. Pepple expressed the hope that the implementation of the recommended minimum wage would boost the purchasing power of the working class, increase consumption expenditure, and stimulate economic growth

One thing I've learnt as A Nigerian is that.

Whenever Election is near you will start seeing desperation to please the political class.

He wants to be politically correct so as not to anger the grassroots politicians such as Governors.

Why would the Primary in Lagos be accepted while that of Ogun state was not?

This politicians can suck your Dick as long as you give them victory but

What happens after is a story for another day.

Take TINUBU as case study.

Whether 30k is implemented or not, suffer really dey for Naija

This 30k is equivalent to the 8,5k of 2013-2014.
The economy of this country has no direction, they senators, ministers, state governors and the president / vice president are all clueless and wicked.
They don't really care about the masses, they are just for their pockets. Whether APC, PDP or HIV na the same thing.

A man came to me and was like, "he knows the Governor of this state is doing nothing but i should please support the Governor's 2nd term bid because his son is a councilor, and I was like
