Nigeria Governors Give Condition For Payment Of New Minimum Wage | MarvelTvUpdates

The Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) has given a fresh condition for the payment of the new national minimum wage.

The NGF says it is committed to only a new national minimum wage that “states can implement”.

The governors said this in a communique after a virtual meeting on Thursday, May 2, 2024.

The NGF stated that a new national minimum wage is “still work in progress”.

NGF chairman and Kwara State governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, who signed the communique, acknowledged various initiatives adopted in recent times by way of wage award and partial salary adjustment.

He noted that the 37-member tripatriate committee is still in consultation and yet to conclude work.

It was gathered that the 36 state governors are reviewing their individual fiscal space and the consequential impact of various recommendations to arrive at an improved national minimum wage that the various state governments can pay.

State governors also agreed to consider the submissions from the National Summit on Justice which concerns legal amendments and policies to strengthen the justice sector.
