By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Rising from a meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, Governors of the 36 states of the federation have announced N22,500 as the amount they can pay workers as minimum wage.

Business Post reports that the meeting, which was held this evening, lasted about three hours.

The meeting was conveyed under the umbrella of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum headed by Governor Abdul Aziz Yari of Zamfara State.

It would be recalled that the labour unions agreed with the N30,000 minimum wage proposed by the organised private sector.

The present minimum wage in Nigeria is N18,000.
