The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, has said the Federal Government (FG) will implement the New Minimum Wage of N30,000.
He said, “Look at where we took it from; from N18,000 as a minimum wage. What is before the House of Representatives is N30,000, although our recommendation is N27,000.
“Whatever comes out of it, I can tell you that this president has sufficient capital in terms of his integrity; to own up whatever the Nigerian people decide”.
“We have made adequate provision in the 2019 budget; we mean well for the good workers of Nigeria.
The SGF further disclosed that government has made adequate arrangement in the 2019 Appropriation Bill, to cater for the new wage.
