Ayuba Wabba, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), says the Federal Government and the organised Labour movement in the country have reached a consensus to review the national minimum wage.
Wabba, who disclosed this in an interview with newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja, said that the consensus was reached during the sitting of the Technical Committee on Palliative.
He said the committee was meant to look into the framework to ameliorate the sufferings of Nigerians and cushion the effect of the increase in the price of fuel.
Mr. Wabba said: “I think there is a consensus on the fact that nobody has said that the minimum wage should not be reviewed.”
