Ngige disclosed this in an interview with State House correspondents at the end of a meeting he had with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said all stakeholders had sent in their nomination, saying efforts are ongoing to arrive at a date for the committee’s inauguration.
The minister said, “The old (minimum wage) law expired last year August and we are now in the process of empaneling a new national minimum wage committee.
“I have cleared the appointments with the President today (Thursday) and as soon as the labour people come back from the Labour Governing Board meeting in Geneva, we will take a consensus date with the governors because it is a tripartite committee involving federal, states and the private sector: NECA, MAN, NACCIMA, SMEs.
“The NLC, TUC and their affiliates have done their nominations. What we are now trying to finetune is the date for inauguration.”
When asked whether the N56,000 minimum wage being demanded by workers is feasible, Ngige said the tripartite committee would decide that.
