He said the committee was meant to look into the framework to ameliorate the sufferings of Nigerians and cushion the effect of the increase in the price of fuel.
He also noted that the report of the committee, which was also meant to discuss the issue of the minimum wage, was ready for submission.
“I think there is a consensus on the fact that nobody has said that the minimum wage should not be reviewed.
“At the last palliative meeting, labour leaders had requested that they needed to look at the main report of the committee before submission.
“So, the technical committee will have to submit its report to Mr President and not to the Minister of Labour and Employment,‘’ he said.
He said that labour had also received positive response from the National Assembly, saying that the Senate had promised to pass the bill.
Labour unions had submitted a proposal to the government demanding for N56, 000 as minimum wage.
