“Governors have all indicated without any equivocation that we subscribe to the Act of Parliament that has been passed on the 30,000 minimum wage. There is no debate, we have accepted that”, Fayemi said.

“The negotiation team you are talking about is about the consequential impact and each state has started that process.

“If the NLC is not fully aware of the status of the negotiations in the various state we will be happy to share the information available to us with them.

“However, fingers are not equal, states have to negotiate in terms of the consequential implementation, there may be states that are in a position to pay N50,000,
