This meeting is particularly significant as the nation awaits the government’s decision on a new national minimum wage. The NEC provides a crucial platform for dialogue between the federal government and the states, especially since the recent Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting postponed discussions on the minimum wage until President Tinubu completes consultations with relevant parties.


As the workforce eagerly anticipates the outcome, today’s NEC meeting is expected to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the national minimum wage and broader economic policies.
