Speaking in an interview with news men in Abuja, General secretary of the  congress, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson said with the passage of the bill into law, the president should immediately sign it into law in other to give effect to his promise to ensure the welfare of the Nigerian workers.

It was recently rumoured that the president has signed the bill into law giving workers hope that they may start enjoying the new minimum wage before the May day celebration, but it turned out to be a false alarm.
