Inflation: Nigerian Government Plans Increment Of Minimum Wage

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, stated this in Abuja on Monday while addressing members of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) at a public presentation of a publication titled, “Contemporary History of Working Class Struggles.”

Ngige stated that the increment in the minimum wage was necessary due to the current global inflation that has impacted on citizens’ purchasing power.

President Muhammadu Buhari, in 2019, signed Minimum Wage Act into law. However, many States, according to labour leaders, are yet to implement the law of paying their respective workers N30,000.

Ngige said, “The inflation is worldwide, we shall adjust the minimum wage in conformity with what is happening and much more important, the 2019 Minimum Wage Act has a new clause for a review.
