Minimum wage: We’re close to consensus with labour — Gov Uzodinma

The governor said the committee just finished with their various unit meetings and has now proceeded to the plenary, where the committee is expected to harmonise their decisions and hopefully come up with a figure.

The organised labour had demanded N494,000 while the government proposed N60,000.

Due to the refusal of the government to meet its demands, labour declared a strike on Monday and suspended it on Tuesday.

Amid the continued negotiations, there are indications that the new minimum wage might be fixed between N60,000 and N100,000.
