REVEALED: This Is What Tuesday’s Emergency FEC Meeting Decided
On Tuesday in Abuja, there was an emergency meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
President Muhammadu Buhari presided over the meeting that also had in attendance state governors, the Central Bank of Nigeria and some major Ministries, heads of Departments and Agencies of government.
At the end of the meeting, it was gathered that the resolution was that the federal government will present the N30,000 new national minimum wage proposal to the National Economic Council (NEC), chaired by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday for further consultations.
Minister of Information, Mr Lai Mohammed, informed State House correspondents after the FEC rose that deliberations centred on the minimum wage.
Mohammed did not give further details aside from saying that the government would meet with NEC for more talks.
“Until after the meeting of the NEC, l cannot (give details) because it is work in progress, since it will also be discussed at the NEC meeting before we come out with the decision. Thereafter, we can address the media.”
Last week, Buhari inaugurated a technical committee to guide the government on how to implement a new wage bill.
