The Federal Government is set to present the thirty-thousand-naira new National Minimum Wage proposal to the National Economic Council on Thursday for further consultations. This was the key resolution of an extraordinary meeting of the Federal Executive Council, which ended in Abuja on Tuesday night.
The Minister of Information, Mr Lai Mohammed, informed State House correspondents after the FEC rose that deliberations centred on the minimum wage.
Mohammed did not give further details aside from saying that the government would meet with NEC for more talks. Last week, Buhari inaugurated a technical committee to guide the government on how to implement a new wage bill.
