The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President Ayuba Wabba has said the Federal Government would soon announce a new minimum wage as the Tripartite Committee had completed its assignment for onward submission to President Muhammadu Buhari.

He stated this yesterday while briefing journalists in Abuja.

Wabba said the committee has reconvened and deliberated on a new minimum wage figure that was acceptable to all employers of labour in the country.

“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 (NECA) for their resolve to pay the new minimum wage when it is signed into law,” he said.

The NLC president, however, refused to disclose the figure arrived at by the Tripartite Committee.

Wabba said the presidency would soon make it public after deliberation by the National Economic Council meeting.

The organized labour had demanded N65,500 as new minimum wage for workers, while the private employers and some state governors were proposing N25,000.
