He said the committee was meant to look into the framework to ameliorate the sufferings of Nigerians and cushion the effect of the increase in the price of fuel. He also noted that the report of the committee, which was also meant to discuss the issue of the minimum wage, was ready for submission.
“So, the technical committee will have to submit its report to Mr President and not to the Minister of Labour and Employment,” he said.
Wabba said that after the submission, the Presidency would then set up the tripartite committee that would involve the government, private and public sector.
The NLC President said that labour was hopeful that the minimum wage committee would be constituted soon. He said that labour had also received positive response from the National Assembly, saying that the Senate had promised to pass the bill.
