“I think there is a consensus on the fact that nobody has said that the minimum wage should not be reviewed.

 

“The palliative report is ready and it would be submitted before the end of the month.

 

“At the last palliative meeting, labour leaders requested that they needed to look at the main report of the committee before submission.

 

“So, the technical committee will have to submit its report to Mr President and not to the Minister of Labour and Employment,‘’ he said.

 

Wabba said after the submission, the Presidency would then set up the tripartite committee that would involve the government, private and public sector.

 

The NLC President said Labour was hopeful that the minimum wage committee would be constituted soon.

 

He said Labour had also received positive response from the National Assembly, saying that the Senate had promised to pass the bill.

 

The labour unions had submitted a proposal to the government demanding N56, 000 as minimum wage.
