The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has met with the Ministers of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige, Finance, Zainab Ahmed, and Budget, Udoma Udo Udoma over the minimum wage.

The Labour Minister, Chris Ngige confirmed the meeting to journalists at the State House on Wednesday.

He noted that a full-scale meeting has been scheduled to take place on Thursday, November 1, 2018.

Osinbajo had earlier met with some governors over the minimum wage on Monday.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has rejected the new minimum wage of N22,500 proposed by governors.

NLC President, Ayuba Wabba, insisted that the planned industrial action slated for November 6, 2018, will hold.

He described the resolution of the governors as unknown to Labour laws and contrary to the overall decision of the Tripartite Committee.
