Minimum Wage: NAAT Proposes N350,000

AS the Tripartite Committee on the National Minimum Wage prepares to release the harmonised recommendation for the new minimum wage expected to take effect from May, the National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, on Wednesday, proposed N350,000 as the new living wage.

NAAT based its recommendation on the present economic situation in the country occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy, high inflationary rate and the attendant hardship.

This is as the Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, has hinted that the federal government will soon introduce the policy that will make skill acquisition compulsory for primary and secondary schools.

The Minister said that NAAT is very important to the present education curriculum, pointing out that the present world is driven by technology which is used to solve problems.

The Minister dropped the hint while declaring open the NAAT's National Delegate Conference in Abuja.

Prof. Mamman, who described NAAT as being pivotal and at the centre of the nation's development, disclosed that, "The Federal Government is planning to bring skills education in primary and secondary schools."
