Noting that the exercise would be due in 2024, Njoku said the monitoring team will among other things inquire if employers keep adequate records of wage and conditions of service of employees.

The exercise will enlighten the public and private employers and organisations on the economic benefits in adhering to the payment of the National Minimum Wage.

“It will also help in obtaining baseline data on remuneration policies and practices of private sector organisations in order to enrich the commission’s data bank on staff compensation.

“The monitoring exercise will cover the 36 states of the federation including the Federal Capital Territory,” he said.
