House of Reps call on President Buhari to transmit Tripartite Agreement on new Minimum Wage to National Assembly

The House of Representatives have called on President Muhammadu Buhari, to urgently transmit the Tripartite Agreement on National Minimum Wage to the National Assembly for legislation, to avert looming industrial action and its attendant consequences.

This is just as the lawmakers resolved to investigate the causes of incessant strikes by the organized labour, including the Parliamentary Staff Association of the National Assembly and Academic Staff Union of Universities -ASUU and to make appropriate recommendations.

The resolutions followed a motion by Sani Zoro of urgent public importance, with a “call for legislative intervention to maintain industrial peace in Nigeria

Zorro, in a lead debate, had raised alarm over frequent threats of industrial action by the organized labour, amidst lack of viable alternative or due process needed for appropriate resolution of industrial disputes.
