The Speaker of the House of Representatives, YAKUBU DOGARA, has reiterated the commitment of the National Assembly to passing a new minimum wage bill.
In a statement to mark the 2017 Workers’ Day, DOGARA said the parliament had resolved to enact new minimum wage bill for Nigerian workers.
The speaker said that increasing workers’ salary had become necessary in view of the current inflation, naira devaluation and rising cost of living in the country.
According to him, the National Assembly is committed to initiating other laws and legislative interventions that will promote the welfare and well-being of Nigerian Workers.
He however, enjoined the labour force to rededicate themselves to duty and support government’s laudable policies and programmes.
