President of Trade Union Congress of Nigeria, Bobboi Kaigama, has called for quick harmonisation of the N30,000 national minimum wage bill to enable President Muhammadu Buhari assent to it.

Kaigama spoke in Lagos on the implementation of the new minimum wage.

The leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress had urged the President to sign and implement the new wage before the end of the 8th National Assembly.

The TUC president said that the House of Representatives and the Senate needed to harmonise the agreed sum and pass it to the President for his assent.

The labour chief said that implementation would be seamless since the Federal Government had said that it included its provision in the budget, but might take a while in some states that had not included it in their budget.

He urged the private sector not to delay its implementation as soon as the bill is enacted into law.
