FG Gives Update On New Minimum Wage Implementation, To Pay Arrears

The Federal Government will, on Tuesday in Abuja, inaugurate the N30,000 new national minimum wage implementation committee, almost one month after President Muhammadu Buhari signed the bill into law.

Dr Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment said this while fielding questions on television concerning the time for payment of the new wage. See also: NYSC 2019 Batch B News UPDATES – Official Registration Date Postponed

Ngige did not state when government would start payment but said that arrears would be paid anytime implementation of the new wage began.

He said there were still processes and procedures the new wage would undergo before the commencement of its implementation, even though it had been passed and signed into law. See also: FG Confirmed NYSC Allowance Increment And Revealed When The Payment Will Start

“It is a whole process and the salary and wages commission will do its job before implementation,” the minister said.

He said that the committee was made of seven ministers with the Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita as Chairman.

The minister said that those at the lowest cadre of employment whether in the public or private sector would earn N30,000 as the law provided. See also: Vital Unknown Fact About NYSC Allowance Increment – NYSC Allowee Update

He said however, for the cadre of workers already earning above the minimum wage, there would be consequential adjustment from the top.

Ngige added that the relevant agency of government would soon issue a circular on the expected adjustments.

  1. I don’t think so, but I hope so.
    Thanks Lola for your updates, I’m very greatful

  2. I read in one of your posts that if one doesn’t want to go with a particular batch, he/she can register and then nit do anything else.

    My question
    During registration, will i get to the part where i choose the states i would like to serve in before the payment requirements

    Should I pay the #3000

    I know i can’t choose the batch I’ll fall in, but if its first batch can i decide not to go with first batch and then follow the second? (is there a procedure)
