He urged the committee, chaired by former Head of Service of the Federation Ama Pepple, to amicably consider the issue of a national minimum wage and all matters ancillary to it with thoroughness and concern not only for the welfare of Nigerian work-force but the effect on the country’s economy.


 
The president said since national minimum wage is within the Exclusive Legislative List, Nigeria should aim to go above the basic social protection floor for all workers based on the ability of each tier of government to pay.
"I say this because minimum wage is the minimum amount of compensation an employee must receive for putting in his or her labour and as such should be anchored on social justice and equity," he said.
He said the government’s decision after considering the committee's final recommendation would be sent as an Executive Bill to the National Assembly for appropriate legislative scrutiny before passage into law.
