Reps demands minimum wage report from Buhari

OrderPaperToday – The House of Representatives on Wednesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to transmit the tripartite agreement on national minimum wage to the National Assembly for legislation.
The Reps said this was necessary to avert the looming industrial action
threatened by organized labour with the potential of paralyzing the nation’s socio-economic and political activities and other attendant costs.
The green chamber also advised the Federal Government to henceforth display good faith in implementing the age-old agreement mutually reached between it and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
These resolutions emanated from a motion raised by Mr  Mohammed Zorro (APC,Jigawa) under matters of urgent national importance during plenary.
Meanwhile, following the protest by the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) which disrupted activities at the National Assembly on Tuesday, the lawmakers of the green chamber resolved to also constitute an ad-hoc committee with the Senate to investigate its remote and immediate causes and make appropriate recommendations to the two legislative chambers for appropriate action.
