The Nigerian National Council of State has approved N27,000 as the minimum wage for the country. The council approved the amount at its meeting in Abuja on Tuesday. Following the Council’s approval, a minimum wage bill is expected to be sent to the National Assembly on Wednesday. According to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, the Federal Government is topping the approved amount by N3,000 to 30,000 for its workers. He said the states are at liberty to augment the new agreement as they see fit.

I urge the Nigeria Labour Congress to accept this New Minimum Wage.  There is no need insisting  on its own proposals when at the end of the day some States might not be able to pay,  and it will not be justifiable to call workers to go on strike,  if someone States can afford to pay the minimum wage. At the end of the day,  it is the NLC  that may suffer implosion,  as some States workers may fall out with it.
