It’s official: Buhari signs N30,000 minimum wage into law

A Nigerian labour unions rally.

President Muhammadu Buhari has signed the National Minimum Wage Bill into law.

The bill approving N30,000 as the new national minimum wage was passed by both chambers of National Assembly before commencing 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.

Implementation of the new national minimum wage begins April 18.
