During a briefing with State House Correspondents, Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, shared that a total of 39 items were addressed during the meeting.

Although the Tripartite Committee had submitted its report, Minister Idris highlighted that the Council was unable to make a decision as it requires input from various stakeholders such as Local Government, states, FG, Organised Private Sector, and Labour unions.

In light of this complexity, the memo on the new minimum wage has been put on hold to allow for President Bola Tinubu to undertake extensive consultations before a final submission is presented to the National Assembly.
