President Muhammadu Buhari has received an advisory report on how to fund the newly increased workers’ minimum wage

The bill to increase the minimum wage to N30, 000 is still before the National Assembly.

Naija News understands that President Buhari received the report from the Technical Committee on the Implementation of the new minimum wage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja earlier today.

Buhari thanked the committee for submitting the report before the bill was passed into law.
He assured that the government will expeditiously study the report towards its implementation.

Also in attendance were the Minister of Finance, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, and that of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma, as well as the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele, amongst others.

The meeting came one week after the Senate approved N30,000 minimum wage for Federal and State workers across the country.

The lawmakers gave the approval after the National Minimum Wage Bill was read and passed for the third time in the Senate.
