Labour and Employment Minister, Chris Ngige has promised to speed up the processes for the implementation of the new minimum wage.

Ngige, while addressing newsmen after his inauguration as minister by President Buhari, said that he had always been a man of his words.

The Minister vowed to resolve all impending disputes in the sector, saying that his track record had reflected in his efforts in the last three and a half years.

It would be recalled that there was a face-off between the Minister and Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC over the constitution of the board of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund, NSITF, shortly before Ngige exited the ministry in May.

The two parties had engaged each other in war of words over Ngige’s refusal to allow a former labour leader, Frank Kokori head the board of the Fund

Ngige was at the forefront of negotiations for the thirty thousand naira minimum wage which had since been signed into law by the President.
