The Federal Government says the report of the Tripartite Committee on the new minimum wage reflects a balanced and realistic approach to addressing the challenges faced by the country’s workforce.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, made this known on Monday in Abuja during a one-day retreat on ‘Labour reforms and the quest for living wage in Nigeria.

She said submissions were a blueprint for actionable reforms that would drive sustainable improvements in labour conditions across the country.

Onyejeocha restated the current administration’s resolve towards transforming the labour landscape in Nigeria, ensuring that every worker is respected, protected, and fairly compensated.

Onyejeocha, while acknowledging the role of legislative intervention, underscored the need for the standing committees saddled with the responsibility of legislative oversight and indeed the Parliament, to enact laws that protect and empower workers.
