The Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed has been directed by the Federal Executive of Finance to effect the payment of the N30,000 new national minimum wage on or before December 31,2019.
A lot of corp members are really anticipating for the increase as it will help them in different ways. I really hope this is not a case of another “Audio money” but an action step.
Seeing your move earlier for the refund of the IITA over payment. I’ll keep my hands crossed and be positive about you. Don’t disappoint.

30k is still ridiculous though… Introducing health insurance and other benefits for corp members would help

Hon Minister, kindly recall also that the minimum wage was approved by the FG since around April if am not mistaking. I know a lot of corp members that are expecting to get paid in arrears.
I particularly am expecting my own, I need to change my phone.
