Nigeria: Govt to Review Salaries of Workers Earning Above Minimum Wage

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday inaugurated an advisory technical committee for the implementation of the proposed N30, 000 new minimum wage for Nigerian workers.

He also announced that the Federal Government would review the salaries of workers currently earning above the national minimum wage.

The appointment of the advisory committee comes a day after the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) held a nationwide protest over the wage demand.

It is not clear whether the review of the salaries of those earning higher than the current minimum wage would be downward or upward.

According to the president, the re-negotiation will commence shortly after the passage of the new minimum wage law.
