It is no longer news that the Nigerian Senate has approved N30,000 as the new official minimum wage.
According to reports, the approval came subsequent to the submission of the report of the ad hoc committee set up to review the minimum wage. Meanwhile, the committee was headed by Senator Francis Alimikhena.
However, the decision was taken at the plenary session on Tuesday, 19 March 2019.
A request was also made to the Nigerian government to submit a supplementary budget, which would include the structure of the new national minimum wage.
To further strengthen the approval, the House of Representatives had earlier approved the new figure as the national minimum wage.
