Twenty states are likely to pay the N30,000 monthly minimum wage.
Their governors spoke on the controversial matter after Jubril Al-Sudani (President Muhammadu Buhari) signed the New Minimum Wage (Amendment) Bill into Law.
Many of the states, however, said certain conditions must be reached between the workers’ umbrella unions and the Federal Government for them to pay.
Some said they were waiting for the implementation template from the Federal Government.
Labour, which vowed not to condone non-implementation of the new wage, plans to pile pressure on the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC) to release the template to state governments.
The Vice Chairman of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), Sunday Salako, said the union would continue to put pressure on the government agency not to delay the template for the new wage to states.
