BREAKING: Stalemate as minimum wage committee adjourns till 10pm
Olalekan Adetayo, Abuja
The meeting of the tripartite committee set up to come up with a new national minimum wage has ended in a stalemate.
The Chairman of the committee, Ama Pepple, told journalists at the end of their marathon meeting that they would be reconvening at 10pm.
She however said the committee arrived at two figures of N24,000 and N30,000 as the new national minimum wage.
She said the committee had appealed to the labour leaders to call off the strike and they have promised to consult and revert when the meeting reconvened at 10pm.
But the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said the meeting at 10pm was meant to get appointment on when the report will be submitted to the President.
