The organised Labour has disclosed that it is not aware of any N105,000 minimum wage proposal by the Federal Government.

Reports emerged on Thursday that the Minister of Finance, Wale Edun had presented a new minimum wage template to the president while proposing a new minimum wage of N105,000.

However, the Presidency debunked such reports.

Labour also stated that the N105,000 being peddled around has not been presented to the Minimum Wage Tripartite Committee for consideration by parties.

The Government team is yet to clarify the N105,000 purported minimum wage proposal.

However, the Minister of State for Labour, Nkeiru Onyejeocha, gave some updates on ongoing talks, stating that progress was being made.

As Nigerians await a figure for a new minimum wage, at the moment the N105, 000 purportedly pushed by the Government in the social media is the only figure to hold on to now, while negotiations continue.
