President Muhammadu Buhari has finally signed the National Minimum Wage Bill into law. By this act, the new minimum wage is now N30,000.
The President assented to the Act on Thursday in Abuja, mandating all employers of labour across the country to pay workers a minimum of N30,000 monthly wage.
The National Assembly had submitted the minimum wage bill to the President since March 27.
The bill approving N30,000 as the new national minimum wage was passed by both chambers of National Assembly before they went on break for the 2019 general elections.
The delay in signing the bill into law had instigated the workers who plead with President Buhari to append his signature on the bill before the coming workers day on May 1.
Some of the workers had expressed concerns over the delay in signing the bill into law, adding that it was causing them unnecessary anxiety.
