President Muhammadu Buhari today accented to the N30,000 new National Minimum Wage Bill as approved by the two chambers of the National Assembly.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly (Senate), Sen. Ita Enang, confirmed this development when he briefed State House correspondents in Abuja on Thursday.
In January this year, President Buhari had sought the approval of N27,000 as against the N30,000 agreed upon by stakeholders.
However, the two houses of the National Assembly, the Senate and the House of Representatives approved the sum of N30,000 as the new national minimum wage.
According to Enang, signing of the new minimum wage bill by the president had made it compulsory for employers of labour in the country to pay the N30,000 as minimum wage.
