Written by thereachfm on May 28, 2019
The Federal Government has ordered state governments, ministries departments and agencies to commence payment of the new minimum wage
The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, who said this also said that there is no other requirement on the part of the government for the commencement of the payment of the new wage
The minister’s explanation came amid a report that his office is yet to release a certain instrument authorizing payment, the absence of which would unduly delay the takeoff date of the new pay.
According to the minister, the minimum wage law does not authorize the office of the AGF to do anything more for payment to commence once the President has given his assent to the bill
