Ngige Says FG Will Increase Salaries Next Year

Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, has promised Nigerian workers that they will get a pay rise next year.

Ngige said this in Awka, the Anambra State capital, during an interactive session with journalists on Tuesday.
He explained that the various committees handling the minimum wage issue would soon come up with a solution.

Ngige said: “minimum wage is a constitutional issue and is in the exclusive list.
“The Nigerian workers are entitled to a review of their pay under the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“The various committees handling this matter are all working hard to realise the objective. Some are at the final stages of their work.”

The former Anambra Governor also noted that the minimum wage would be enforceable by workers in both private and public sectors.

*We shall see,next year no far again!


  1. They have not increased yet, they are still owing. Then why are they telling us this news after mmm issue? Are they trying to console us?

    1. I've never seen a regime where federal civil servants are not paid for months. This is the 3rd month. Last dispensation December salary would've been paid by 20th Max, now I've not seen Oct salary and his one is talking increment.

      No promotion arrears for the last promotion and I am due for another one this year ( which by the way for the first time no one is even sure when it's happening)

      Everything is just upside down.
      I regret this change, Aswear

  2. Increase what!!! When there are still people who have not been paid in months. Who is fooling who?

  3. Empty promises.

    The #5000 stipend they promised the gullible Nigerians, they couldn't fulfill. Now this?

    I'm watching and waiting.

  4. We are watching. Next year is just some days away

  5. Na so,sisi stella leave all these politicians,thats how they will b promising upandan,hell is real

  14. Clueless government with a cattle header in charge.

  15. Dis one na Tales by moonlight o! No be today we know say yansh de for back o!we don tire for dia stories abeg!

  16. Stories upon stories...I haven't seen my November salary and this one is talking about increment. The federal government has also increased tax! It's just so sad...

  17. I need to save this page. I know this same man will say tomorrow that he was misquoted. I can't wait for 2019 to come fast.

  18. Will the Labor minister and the present administration be able to keep the tandem inflation in check? What will be the real cost of living and quality of life for the average Naija after wages go up? Abeggi, make una swerve.
