This was disclosed to State House correspondents, on Thursday, by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang in Abuja.

Enang further explained that the Act gives workers the right to sue an employer to recover the balance or authorise the Minister of Labour to take action against any employer who refuses to pay the stipulated wage.
The President’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, also confirmed this in a tweet.
