President Muhammadu Buhari has signed the national minimum wage bill into law. The senate passed the bill on March 19, approving N30,000 as the new national minimum wage. The house of representatives had earlier passed the bill.
Recall that the national council of state had approved N27,000 while the federal government said it would increase it to N30,000 for its workers.
The tripartite committee earlier set up by the federal government had approved N30,000 for both federal and state workers, but states will likely pay N27,000 now.
