The Federal Government of Nigeria has denied agreeing to a N30,000 minimum wage as claimed by the labour union. 

Minister of Labour and employment, Chris Ngige states this Wednesday while briefing State House correspondents after the meeting of the Federal Executive Council.

President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba,  on Monday said the Federal Government will soon be announcing the new figure after the tri-partite committee ended its negitiations.

The Nigerian Labour Congress has insisted on its planned strike as the meeting with the Federal Government has ended in a deadlock.

The meeting between the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, and the Tripartite Committee was to look into the issue of the minimum wage which has led to a planned strike.

The meeting follows a warning by the union to commence an indefinite strike starting from midnight.

The organised labour has said that the 14-day ultimatum it gave the Federal Government from September 12, to implement the new minimum wage will not be reversed or extended.
It stated this in reaction to a directive by the Minister of Labour, Dr Chris Ngige, asking the New Minimum Wage Committee to adjourn indefinitely to enable him to make further consultation with the government. 
The minister’s pronouncement came at a time the committee was finalising its work of arriving at a definite figure for submission to the government.
