According to Wabba, the minimum wage adjustment agreement concluded at the federal level is the criterion that should guide the governments of the Länder and other private sector employers to reach an agreement with their workers. The Nigerian government says it is working to facilitate the removal of the minimum wage tax and has also agreed to cooperate with unions in the housing and gas systems, given that the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) have suspended the nationwide planned strike following a consultation meeting with the FG. On 16, 17 and 18 October, the National Council of Public Services (JNPSNC), the Ministry of Labour and Employment and the Ministry of State, Labour and Employment as conciliators held meetings that resulted in a resolution that the new minimum wage should increase in federal government ministries, departments and authorities. According to the source, the documents requested by the federal government are intended to support their demands during negotiations on new minimum wage adjustments. After days of intensive negotiations, the federal government and the country`s unions have come together to implement the new minimum wage. Labour and Employment Minister Chris Ngige announced early Friday morning in Abuja news of the much-anticipated deal, shortly after a government team he leads reached a meeting with the Labour Party. The federal government has finally issued the circular on the implementation of the new minimum wage of N30,000 for federal employees, thus creating the conditions for state unions to begin negotiations on the consequent adjustment to the new wage, as revealed by the THISDAY survey. «I think it`s a very good thing that the unions and the government can really cooperate constructively to reach an agreement,» she said. The CNPC chairman said that states had expressed an obligation to pay the new minimum wage, with the exception of two states, and added that the Labor Party intended to continue to work with the states concerned and make them understand that they were capable of demonstrating a certain degree of commitment. . .
