Tinubu okays inauguration of committee on new minimum wage

President Bola Tinubu has approved the formation of a committee to oversee the implementation of Nigeria’s new minimum wage.

George Akume, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, revealed this in a letter addressed to Ambali Olatunji, an official of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

According to the letter titled “Inauguration of the tripartite committee on National Minimum wage” dated January 23, the SGF said the inauguration will take place at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, State House, Abuja at 12.00noon prompt.

“I write to inform you that Mr. President has approved the inauguration of the Tripartite Committee on National Minimum Wage.

“Members are to be seated by 11.30am. Kindly note that a shuttle bus will be available at the pilot gate to convey members to the venue from 10.00 am.

“In light of the above, you may wish to contact the Secretariat of the Committee in the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission for any enquiries.

“Please accept as always, the assurances of my warm regards.”

News24 Nigeria reports that minimum wage for workers remains N30,000 even as Tinubu had promised a massive increase in the monthly pay following the removal of petrol subsidy.
