Buhari Meets With Labour, Gives Assurance On N30,000 Minimum Wage

President Muhammadu Buhari has met with leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), assuring them of meeting their N30, 000 minimum wage demands.

The President stated this when the NLC leadership visited him at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He told the NLC that PDP is yet to explain to Nigerians what they did with the oil money, reminding them that he had intervened when they made their demands for 30,000 naira as minimum wage, during a time when the nation was barely struggling to survive.

He equally reminded that the rail system was gone as well as power inspite of 16billion naira earmarked for it.

He asked again ‘where is the power’ as he described that expenditure as unprecedented and irresponsible.

So the present administration he says was saddled with dealing with the ‘terrible mismanagement of the country’.

He also acknowledged the pressure the union has faced and supported it offers during the elections.
