Sen. Shehu Sani, (APC- Kaduna Central) has asked the Federal Government to fulfil the third quarter promise for the implementation of the new National Minimum Wage for workers in the country.
Sani said that the implementation of the National Minimum Wage was long overdue as workers in the country are faced with various challenges and hardships.
He added, “I do not think Nigerian workers are doing well, if you look at the reality of life today, the economic situation and compare it to the minimum wage.
“It means what they are earning, there is nothing to write home about as they have bills to settle, school fees for the children, house rents, among others.
“If you put all these into perspectives, you will see that the minimum wage is no more a minimum wage, because it cannot even take care of their basic necessities.
“So, as representatives of the people, we have both the constitutional, political, moral responsibility to advance, defend and protect the course of worker’s demand,‘’ he said.
