N27,000 has been approved as the new national minimum wage by the Council Of State at its meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.

A new minimum wage bill is expected to be sent to the National Assembly on Wednesday.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, said the Federal Government will add N3,000 to the approved amount to make it N30,000 for its workers.

He said the states can also add whatsoever amount they deem fit to their workers.

9JAHOTVYBES MEDIA recalls that the Tripartite Committee on Review of National Minimum Wage chaired by Ms Amma Pepple had recommended N30,000.

State governors said they can only pay N22,500 as minimum wage.

They demanded that a review of the sharing formula be done so they could implement the proposed National Minimum Wage for Nigerian workers.

The Federal Government on Tuesday, January 15, summoned an extraordinary emergency Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting where it was resolved that the matter should be tabled before the National Economic Council (NEC) for further deliberations.

Following the recommendation by the Council of state, the organised Labour are yet to comment on the decision.
