PRESIDENCY PLEADS WITH LABOUR TO BE PATIENT ON MINIMUM WAGE.

The Presidency has appealed to Nigerians not to pile unnecessary pressure on President Bola Tinubu, assuring that he would transmit the proposed bill on the new minimum wage to the National Assembly once it is ready.

The Special Adviser to the President on Information and Strategy, Bayo Onanuga, made the plea in a phone chat with Newsmen.

The assurance comes barely 24 hours after the Organised Labour urged the President to consider consulting and reaching an agreement with its leadership before transmitting the bill to the National Assembly.

The workers’ union admitted that their much anticipated meeting of the National Executive Committee, which will accommodate about 300 Labour leaders, is being stalled by Tinubu’s delay to transmit the wage bill.

A month after his speech, Tinubu left the camp of Labour and Nigerians waited in anxiety on what the FG was up to.

While admitting that he had no knowledge of the date for submission, the presidential aide pleaded for more time.
