Minister of Labor and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has assured workers across the country that the Federal Government would announce a new minimum wage by September this year.


He gave the assurance while speaking at the 40th anniversary of Nigeria Labor Congress, in Abuja, yesterday.

According to Ngige, the Federal Government is currently receiving memoranda from relevant bodies and persons to enable the determination of a new minimum wage for the nation.

The minister added that the Buhari-led administration was not unmindful of the fact that some state governors are unable to pay the current N18, 000 minimum wage.

He, however, appealed to workers for more time and understanding to enable the Federal Government ensure all state governments comply with the yet-to-be announced new minimum wage.
