Senate Pledges Swift Action on National Minimum Wage Bill

The Senate has pledged to give prompt attention to the national minimum wage bill once it is received from the executive branch.
Senator Yemi Adaramodu, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, emphasized the Senate’s dedication to the security and welfare of Nigerians during a statement made yesterday.
“If immediately after Sallah, the bill is brought by Mr. President to the National Assembly, it’s going to be dealt with, with the speed of lightning,” Adaramodu stated. He assured that the bill would be thoroughly scrutinized and processed expeditiously, as it serves the best interests of Nigerian workers.
Addressing the disparities in wage proposals, Adaramodu expressed confidence in reaching a consensus among all parties involved, including the federal government, state governments, and the organized private sector. He underscored the necessity for a comprehensive and enforceable bill that will be adhered to by all stakeholders.
Adaramodu also called on the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to advocate for workers beyond the federal level and ensure compliance with the minimum wage across all sectors. He affirmed the Senate’s commitment to safeguarding the welfare of Nigerian workers and warned that any non-compliance with the minimum wage law would face appropriate sanctions.
“We need all stakeholders to work together in ensuring the successful implementation of the new minimum wage,” he urged, highlighting the Senate’s resolve to protect the interests of workers and enforce the new wage law effectively.
