FG to increase minimum wage – Chris Ngige
Chris Ngige, minister of labor and employment, reveals that the federal government will announce salary increases for workers.
Ngige said this while speaking to state house correspondents after a meeting with President Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja on December 27.
According to him, the presidential committee on salaries is working with the National Salaries Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC) on the matter.
“The commission is mandated by the act establishing them to fix salaries, wages, and emoluments. So, they have the matrix to do the evaluation. They are working with the presidential committee on salaries, chaired by the finance ministry and I am the co-chair, to look at the demands of the workers.
Outside this, I said discussions on that evaluation are going. As we enter the new year, the government will make some pronouncements in that direction”
