The Federal Government has made it known it was not in support of the N22,500 minimum wage proposed by the Nigeria Governors Forum.

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige, made the stance of the Federal Government known on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.

He said, “The governors have not even done enough. I told them that this N22,500 was even rejected by the Federal Government,” he said.



The NGF had stated that they were capable of paying Nigerian workers N22,500 as the new minimum wage as against the current N18,000.

Ngige added, “The national minimum wage is a national legislation being driven by the Federal Government of Nigeria in pursuance to item 34 of the Exclusive Legislative list.”
