The federal government delegation comprises various ministers and officials, including the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume; Labour Minister Nkiruka Onyejeocha; and the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila.

Earlier, the Organised Labour suspended its nationwide strike, which began on Monday, following assurances from the President to consider a minimum wage above N60,000.

The tripartite committee is scheduled to meet daily for the next week to negotiate a mutually acceptable national minimum wage.

The current minimum wage of N30,000, established in 2019, has been deemed inadequate by labour unions, citing the country’s current economic realities.

Labour Unions have demanded a new minimum wage of N494,000, rejecting previous government offers, including the latest proposal of N60,000.
