The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has assured Nigerian workers that President Muhammadu Buhari is committed to the implementation of a new national minimum wage in the country.He said the President will not undermine Nigerian workers.
Oshiomhole, said this today while receiving a delegation of the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) led by its president, BobboiKaigama, at the APC National secretariat. He added that President Buhariwill not in any way dismantle the gains the working class has achieved over the years.
Oshiomhole said he is proud of his Labour background, adding that organized labourwill always remain his primary constituency.
According to him, one of the ideas of a National Minimum Wage is to provide a social club below which no Nigerian workers should be engaged. He added that president Buhari has shown his commitment to the minimum wage by setting up a panel to review upward the existing National Minimum Wage.
