President Bola Ahmed Tinubu hinted last night that only a sustainable minimum wage will be recommended for legislative action by the National Assembly.

Following the conclusion of negotiations, the Tripartite Committee recommended N62,000 minimum wage as agreed upon by the federal/state governments and Organised Private Sector (OPS).

But Labour insisted on N250,000.

The recommendation has been submitted to Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF) George Akume.

The President is now being looked upon to send his approved recommendation as a Bill to the National Assembly.

At the dinner to mark Democracy Day, the President said: “Senate President, Deputy Senate President, you’ll get a notice if I’ve changed my mind on minimum wage.
