The wait is over. The National Council of State has approved the 27,000 naira as new minimum wage.

The Council approved the amount during its meeting on Tuesday in Abuja.

The approved amount is clearly below the 30,000-naira wage demanded by organised labour, and it still unclear whether this will still be subject to negotiation by the state governors who had insisted that they could only afford to pay only 22,500 naira.

This is still a developing story. More details soon…
