The federal government has promised to transmit the new national minimum wage bill to the National Assembly by January 23rd for passage.
The minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, disclosed this on Tuesday during a rescheduled meeting with the leadership of the organised labour in Abuja.
The federal government delegation and the leadership of organised labour have been engaging in a series of meeting in
a bid to resolve the minimum wage disagreement and avert another nation wide strike.
Meanwhile, Labour leaders and members of the NLC on Tuesday commenced nationwide protest to effect the implementation of the N30,000 as new minimum wage.
The protest is still ongoing in almost all the states of the federation as at the time of filing this report.
