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.
