Senate Finally Approves 30K Minimum Wage

Nigerian senate has just approved the new minimum wage bill passed last month by the Upper Arms of the National Assembly

The Nigerian Senate has approved N30,000 as the new national minimum wage.

The approval came subsequent to the submission of the report of the ad hoc committee set up to review the minimum wage. The committee was headed by Senator Francis Alimikhena.

The decision was taken at the plenary session on Tuesday.

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.

The House of Representatives had also earlier approved the new figure as the national minimum wage.
