Reappointed Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has promised to speed up the processes for the implementation of the new minimum wage.
Ngige, while addressing newsmen at his residence after his inauguration as a minister by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday in Abuja, said that he had always been a man of his words.
“I will follow due process to put smiles on the faces of Nigerian workers. “The issue of consequential adjustments in the minimum wage is currently being handled by the permanent secretary in my ministry and he has made some progress.
“By tomorrow (Thursday), we will get the notes from him. The minister of state and I will know how to key in.
“The most important thing is that we want to make sure that the matter is addressed as quickly as possible so that we can put smiles on the faces of Nigerian workers.”
