FG Reveals Kick-off Date For New Minimum Wage

The Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led Federal Government has disclosed that the new minimum wage will take effect from May 1, 2024.

The decision was made despite the Tripartite Committee On National Minimum Wage is yet to conclude its negotiations.

The Minister of State Labour, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, made this known on Wednesday while addressing Nigerian workers at the May Day celebration in Abuja.

She said it is regrettable that the new national minimum wage is not ready before today, but that a wide consultation is ongoing to ensure that the document is out together as soon as possible.
