FG Set To Announce New Minimum Wage – NLC President

The President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, says the Federal Government is set to announce the new minimum wage.

According to him, the tripartite committee has completed its assignment for onward submission to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The NLC President made this known while addressing journalists in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

Wabba said the committee used two days to reconvene and deliberate on a new minimum wage that was acceptable to all employers of labour across Nigeria.

His words: “I want to assure workers that all has been concluded and will be passed for signing within the week.

“I also want to appreciate the Organised Private Sector, Manufacturers Association of Nigeria and Nigeria Employers Consultative Association for their resolve to pay the new minimum wage when it is signed into law,” he said.
