Once we agree on the new minimum wage & general upward review, we will make budget provisions for it for immediate implementation.

I want to use this opportunity to salute many private employers who have already implemented general salary reviews for employees. Fellow Nigerians, this period may be hard on us & there is no doubt about it that it is tough on us.

But I urge you all to look beyond the present temporary pains & aim at the larger picture.
