Senate, House: We will kill bill on wage negotiation


A bill seeking to re-order minimum wage negotiation will not see the light of day, federal lawmakers have said.

They gave the promise to Labour leaders yesterday during a protest march at the National Assembly complex in Abuja.

“The bill will be killed the way a similar one was killed during the eighth National Assembly,” Senator Sabi Abdullahi told the protesters.

Abdullahi (Niger North), received the protesters, led by Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President Ayuba Wabba on behalf of Senate President Ahmad Lawan.

Labour organised the protests at the National Assembly complex in Abuja and House of Assembly complexes in the 36 states to press home its demand that the plan to re-classify minimum wage negotiation from the Executive List, to the Concurrent List, be dropped.
