The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on the federal government to speed-up the process of drafting the bill on the N30,000 minimum wage proposal to the National Assembly, adding that it would not wait till eternity for the government on the issue.

The union also described the government’s silence on the development as provocative, stressing that it expected President Muhammadu Buhari to have submeitted a draft bill to the National Assembly weeks after report on the minimum wage was submitted to him.

The General Secretary of the NLC, Mr Peter Ozo-Eson, who spoke with The Punch, said members of the union were becoming restless with the way the government had handled the issue.

He added that unless government acted fast, the union might meet again to review government’s position and take necessary action to press home its demand.

His words: “The latest about the issue of the minimum wage is clear. We expect that since the Presidency had already received our report, the President should have drafted an executive bill to the National Assembly on it so that they can begin to legislate on it.

“That has not been done even though we expect that it should have been done already. We cannot continue to wait forever.

“The next step as I said is for the President to transmit a draft bill to the National Assembly. The FG’s delay on the issue is provocative, our members are becoming restless and the FG must act fast on our report.
