A psychologist, Prof Benjamin Ehigie, warned on Friday that endless delay in paying Nigerian workers the new minimum wage could make the workers become recalcitrant. He spoke against the backdrop of the endless wait by civil servants in the country to start receiving a long overdue new minimum wage being packaged by the Federal Government. I advise the lawmakers and the government to fast-track the approval and implementation of the wage,’’ Ehigie said. Kaigama, however, expressed his optimism that the Senate would approve the N30, 000 recommended by the tripartite committee on the minimum wage. Nigeria last reviewed its minimum wage in 2011, when former President Goodluck Jonathan reviewed the pay from N7, 500 to N18, 000.
