FG Developing Minimum Wage Based On Workers’ Productivity




The Federal Government has now that it is in the process of developing a new minimum wage that would be dependent on worker’s productivity.

The minimum wage which is exclusively for the civil servants will be tied to employee productivity, allowing workers at the same level to potentially earn varying salaries.

This disclosure was made by Director-General of the National Productivity Centre (NPC), Dr. Nasir Raji-Mustapha, while briefing newsmen at the organization’s headquarters in Abuja on Monday, May 13.

“We are in the process of developing a productivity-led wage system that will ensure that those who are productive are rewarded for their efforts irrespective of their grade level. Under the proposed system, employees on the same salary scale can earn different wages. Of course, labour as a critical stakeholder is being carried along in this exercise. As researchers, we don’t just do things without considering the recipient of the reports.

“When we started the project about three or four years ago, we held stakeholders’ forum which the labour unions participated. We even went further to send memo to NLC and TUC to ask them whether they will support the proposed Wage System and they said they will welcome it,” he said.
