The committees of both chambers of the National Assembly have passed the approved 30,000 naira as monthly minimum wage against the 27, 000 naira proposed by the executive.

While the Senate passed the legislation penultimate Tuesday, the House of Representatives passed it shortly before the assembly went on recess for the general elections in February.

The legislators appealed to the Federal Government not to allow the workers go on strike before its implementation.
