President Muhammadu Buhari has signed into law the Minimum Wage Repeal and Re-Enactment Act, 2019.

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 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.
