SENATE TAKES FRESH ACTION ON MINIMUM WAGE

Written by on March 13, 2019

The Senate yesterday appointed Senate Deputy Majority Whip, Francis Alimikhena, as Acting Chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee on Minimum Wage.

The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, who made the announcement at plenary said Alimikhena would work in acting capacity while the Chairman, Olusola Adeyeye, was away on health grounds.

Saraki charged the committee to expedite action on the matter to enable the senate to be able to catch up with the House of Representatives which had already passed the bill through third reading.

It will be recalled that the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, had on Jan. 24, appointed the Chief Whip of the Senate, Olusola Adeyeye, as Chairman of an eight-member ad-hoc committee mandated to work on the minimum wage bill.
