The Federal Government and the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC have reached a consensus to review the National Minimum Wage.
NLC President, Ayuba Wabba told newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday that the consensus was reached during the sitting of the Technical Committee on Palliative.
He said the committee was meant to look into the framework to ameliorate the sufferings of Nigerians and cushion the effect of fuel pump price hike.
Wabba also noted that the report of the committee, which was also meant to discuss the issue of the minimum wage, will be ready for submission before the end of the month.
Labour unions had submitted a proposal to the government demanding for N56, 000 as minimum wage.
