Labour Minister Chris Ngige

The Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, has said on Friday that the Economic Management Team (EMT) and governors will meet on Monday towards addressing the N30, 000 minimum wage proposal and other grey areas.

The organised labour is threatening to embark on strike action on November 6th, 2018 over minimum wage and other issues.

According to Ngige, no final decision has been taken by the government on the proposed N30, 000 minimum wage.

While speaking with the State House correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Ngige insisted that the government will not fail to implement the ‘No work, no pay’ rule.

He said that the rule started under the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
