President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged by the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) to commence the immediate payment of the N30,000 new minimum wage in Nigeria.

The union said the new minimum wage will be implemented to help in improving the living standard of workers in the current economic situation of the country.

The National Publicity Secretary of NUT; Mr Titus Amba, speaking on the issue, emphasized the need for compliance with the payment of the new minimum wage by all state government, also noting that some state governors are not ready to comply with the payment of the new minimum wage.

“It is the responsibility of the federal government to ensure that every state including local governments comply with the implementation of the new minimum wage.

“Civil servants don’t have any other source of revenue except through salaries…hence, the N30,000 new minimum wage should be implemented from the federal level down to the local government level,” Amba said.

He, however pleads with the Federal Government to foster the implementation of the new N30,000 minimum wage to all civil servants at federal, state and local governments in the country.
