Lawan made the appeal to the executives of the NLC. and also to the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, (PASAN) in their courtesy visit in Abuja.

Lawan called for further understanding and patriotism., adding that some states had started paying the agreed minimum wage.

“We should not encourage personal issue to overshadow our collective responsibility to nation building.

“We will journey with you to ensure absolute implementation of the minimum wage by the Federal government,” Lawan pleaded.

He also assured PASAN to collaborate with the management and leadership of the National Assembly, urging it to present issue-based arguments, instead on engaging strike action to press home its demands.
