The minister submitted the cost proposal to the President at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday, following a 48-hour ultimatum issued to him on Tuesday.
 
PUNCH Online understands that the report outlines several potential new minimum wage levels along with the anticipated fiscal impacts on the federal budget of each option.
