President Muhammadu Buhari has endorsed N30,000 demands of the organised labour as the new national minimum wage.

He spoke after he  received the report of the Tripartite Committee on the Review of National Minimum Wage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The report was submitted by the committee’s chairman, Amal Pepple.

The president also promised to send a bill to the National Assembly to effect the change from N18,000 to N30,000.

Labour had threatened to embark on an indefinite strike from November 6 but suspended the plan after reaching an agreement with the government.
