NASS to seize allocation of states, LGAs that fail to pay approved minimum wage

The National Assembly (NASS) has commenced plans to seize the allocations of States and Local Government Areas (LGAs) that fail to pay the minimum wage that would be approved by the Federal Government.

It was learned that the NASS has resolved to ensure that States, LGAs and the Organised Private Sector (OPS) stop defaulting in the payment of the approved minimum wage.

According to SaharaReporters, NASS also announced plans to include a clause that will provide clear sanctions for defaulters of the new minimum wage bill that will be passed after receiving the Wage Award Bill from President Bola Tinubu.

The Punch also reported that the Senate Spokesman, Yemi Adaramodu, explained that lawmakers would expedite the passage of the Wage Award Bill once President Bola Tinubu sent it.

According to Adaramodu, “It is possible that the President would send the bill after the National Assembly resumed from the Sallah recess on 2nd July.”

Recall that Labour and the Federal Government are still deliberating how much the new minimum wage will be, with the former proposing N250,000 monthly and the latter proposing N62,000 per month.
