The Federal Government has disclosed that it will soon begin monitoring the implementation of the National Minimum Wage Act 2019, which raised Nigeria’s minimum wage from N18,000 to N30,000.
This was disclosed by the Chairman/CEO of the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission, Mr Ekpo Nta, in Abuja, on Thursday.
He added that the monitoring of the Minimum wage would be an interagency collaboration meant to gather evidence on compliance and difficulties faced by stakeholders; and also enable the federal government to plan the next national minimum wage act.
Those who have complied fully will be put on honours list and sanctions [will come] on those who have not and have no good reason,” Nta said.
He added that the commission was collating real time data in collaboration with the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), in order to render advice to the government at the Federal, State, and Local government levels, and private sectors in the formulation of remuneration policies.
