The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr Festus Keyamo SAN, who was at the negotiations along with Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige and labour leaders, disclosed this via his Twitter handle @fkeyamo after hours of deliberations between both parties.
“After some delicate negotiations (with both Ministers as conciliators), the government and Labour have finally reached an agreement on the consequential adjustment of other wages following the implementation of the enhanced minimum wage of 30, 000.
“We are working on the communique,” he said.
