The meeting included all committee members, started with a joint closed-door session that lasted roughly three hours.


Meanwhile, Ajaero said, “They have entered now, you can see them. They will come out later to present it to the general house for discussion.


“We are all praying that everything shall be settled by the end of tomorrow (Friday). That’s a wish for all of us. But the Information on N105,000 National Minimum wage is not before us, either officially or unofficially. We are still hold our position before now, having not presented it to us.
