“The financial implications have been worked out by the presidential committee that was set up and they have submitted their report to the President and the President has directed the report to us,” she noted.

“Apart from the increase of the minimum wage from N18, 000 to N30,000, there is also consequential adjustment that we have to negotiate with the labor unions. See also: NYSC DG Confirmed The Increment Of NYSC Allowance – See Real Amount

“The total financial implications will be determined after negotiations. The negotiation will determine what every other staff that is above the minimum wage will get. It could be a flat amount or a progression.

“The other aspect that should be clear is that there is an increase for the NYSC as well because NYSC, by its Act, is designed that they earn the minimum wage.

“So, NYSC allowance also has to increase to N30, 000. So, I cannot give you projections right now because the negotiations are not yet concluded.”
