There appears to be a new twist around the fresh breakthrough secured the the organised labour in the consequential implementation of the new minimum wage implementation for grade levels seven to 17 of the Nigerian civil workforce.
Apparently many Nigerians are raining the praise on Festus Keyamo, the recently the re-assigned Minister of State For Labour and Employment.
Recall that he was re-assigned by President Muhammadu Buhari from the Ministry of Niger Delta affairs for un-disclosed reasons.
He had tweeted on Thursday, announcing the new agreement between government and Labour:
PMB knew why he took you there. It was for times like this. Kudos

Nigerians in turn went all out to sing his praises as can be seen from the following comments. One twitter user,
When I heard of your abrupt transfer to Labour & Employment Ministry, I knew it was for moment/issue like this. That is, to work in unison with Sen Ngige by collectively bringing your knowledge & experience as an erudite lawyer to fore in tandem wt the 4yr experience he gathers.
