The Nigerian Senate today during their plenary, approved the N30,000 minimum wage for Nigerian workers.
The minimum wage approval follows the the report by the senate ad hoc committee set up to look into the issue, which is a major concern for Nigerian workers who often threaten with strike action, except their demands are met. The report of the Senate Committee chaired by Sen. Francis Alimikhena, was submitted for consideration today and received approval.
The Committee also recommended that the Federal Government should submit a supplimentary budget so that it can the variation in the recurrent expenditure as a result of the increased minimum wage, can be accommodated.
Therefore the implementation of the minimum wage is expected to commence immediately and for both state and federal government workers.
