We are developing a new minimum wage system based on workers’ productivity- FG

NLC

Federal government says it is currently developing a new wage system for the civil service that will be tied to employee productivity, allowing workers at the same level to potentially earn varying salaries.

The Director-General of the National Productivity Centre (NPC), Dr. Nasir Raji-Mustapha, disclosed this 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.
