The presidency is warning that President Muhammadu Buhari did not endorse the N30,000 minimum wage as claimed by many Nigerians – A source explains that Buhari simply expressed his commitment to ensuring the implementation of a new national minimum wage
The source also gives detailed explanation of what President Buhari said when he received the tripartite committee report on the minimum wage. The presidency has reportedly frowned at what it calls a 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 chairman, Ama Pepple, on Tuesday, November 6.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted a presidential source, who preferred not to be named, as saying the president did not endorse N30,000 as proposed by committee as being reported by some sections of the media. The report said the source, however, stated that President Buhari had expressed his commitment to ensuring the implementation of a new national minimum wage.
President Muhammadu Buhari, represented by Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), said this at the 2018 Nigeria’s Annual Education Conference on Tuesday, November 6, in Abuja.
