Tinubu, govs meet over minimum wage, economy, others

President Bola Tinubu met with state governors and ministers on Thursday, over the minimum wage demand by the organised labour, the state of the country’s economy, and other crucial matters.

It was stated that vice president Kashim Shettima chaired the meeting which held at the council chamber of the presidential villa before Tinubu joined the gathering.

The meeting was convened 48 hours after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) stepped down the minimum wage memo, in order to allow the president hold consultations with governors and the private sector.

The Federal and state governments, organised labour, as well as the private sector have been locked in negotiations over a new minimum wage.

At the last meeting of the tripartite committee on minimum wage, organised labour rejected the N62,000 proposal by the government and insisted on N250,000.

The federal government had asked the labour unions to demand a more realistic and sustainable minimum wage.
