The senator representing Abia North Senatorial Zone, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has proposed the sum of 90,000 as the new minimum wage.

Senator Kalu made the proposal during plenary on Tuesday, stressing that the impact of the strike on the economy should not be allowed to happen again because of the adverse effect.

The former Abia governor said if the situation is allowed to continue the way it’s, the one week postponement, won’t serve anybody’s interest and the country might be back to disruption of power supply.

He said the figure represents the current inflation in the country and as such, the labour should consider it.

He said that the senate should not watch and allow things to degenerate.
