President Buhari 'Signs' N30,000 Minimum Wage Bill Into Law

President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday finally signed the National Minimum wage Bill of N30,000 into law.

Concise News understands that adviser on National Assembly (Senate) to the Nigerian leader, Ita Enang, would address newsmen on this development later today

The Nigerian Senate had on 19 March approved the bill increasing the national minimum wage to N30,000.

The federal lawmakers passed the bill after President Buhari sent it for consideration, following its approval by the National Council of State.

The Council of State, comprising former Nigerian heads of states and presidents, Chief Justices of Nigeria (CJN), the leadership of the National Assembly, state governors among others, had approved the sum of N27,000, while the federal government said it would increase it to N30,000 for its workers.

But the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on 22 January rejected the N27,000 National Minimum Wage.

“It is abysmal of government to be delaying the submission of an Executive Bill to the National Assembly and by wrongfully adopting N27,000 through the council of states,” NLC Secretary Peter Ozo-Eson had said.
