President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has undertaken to pay a minimum wage that is more than N60,000 as the meeting of the Tripartite Committee resumes sittings.
The committee will meet every day in the next week to reach an agreement on the new minimum wage.

These are part of the agreement signed last night after an eight-hour meeting between the Federal Government officials and Organised Labour leaders.

The meeting was called in the aftermath of the indefinite strike called by Labour over the wage crisis.

Also in the agreement is that Labour leaders will immediately call a meeting with their critical organs and take a decision on the one-day-old strike.

Labour is expected to call off the strike because the pact it signed precludes the government from victimising any union official who participated in the enforcement of the strike.

Those who signed the agreement on behalf of the Federal Government are Minister of Information and National Orientation Mohammed Idris and Minister of State (Labour and Employment) Nkeiruka Onyejeocha.

For Labour, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) President Joe Ajaero and Trade Union Congress (TUC) President Festus Osifo signed.
