Written by thereachfm on March 25, 2019
President Muhammadu Buhari says he is in receipt of the report of the Presidential Technical Advisory Committee on the Implementation of the National Minimum Wage (PTAC) with a pledge to review it in the shortest time.
The PTAC, which was inaugurated on Jan. 9, has the mandate to advise the Federal Government on how best to fund the additional costs of implementing the imminent increase in the National Minimum Wage.
The president added further that the committee will give advice on the consequential increases in salaries and allowances for other employees without worsening the already difficult fiscal condition .
In the same vein, President Buhari noted with delight the way and manner the Technical Committee, chaired by Bismarck Rewane, took on the important national assignment with all seriousness.
