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

The Senate had on March 19 passed the bill, approving N30,000 as the new national minimum wage.

The House of Representatives had earlier  passed the bill before the National Assembly shut down its operations to enable lawmakers to participate in the 2019 general elections.

Workers in the Federal Capital Territory on Tuesday begged the president to sign the minimum wage bill submitted to him by the National Assembly on March 27, into law before Workers Day on May 1.
