National minimum wage in Nigeria

The campaign for a minimum wage in Nigeria has been going on for a long time. Passage by the House of Representatives is the first formal step.

Reps Counter Council of State, Pass N30.000 As New Minimum Wage
House of Representatives on Tuesday approved N30.000 [±$83.00 per month] as new minimum wage for Nigerian workers…

By this development, the House has countered the National Council of State, NCS and the State Governors who had earlier at an emergency meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja approved N27.000.

Meanwhile, the House has formally adjourned plenary to February 19 due to the Presidential and National Assembly elections that would hold February 16.
