JUST IN: Buhari Officially Approves N30,000 Minimum Wage
President Muhammadu Buhari has finally and officially approved the increase of the national minimum wage from N18,000 to N30,000.
Mr. President gave his approval to this at the Presidential Villa in Abuja while receiving reports of the Tripartite Committee on the Review of National Minimum Wage.
Upon Buhari’s approval, a bill will be forwarded to the National Assembly to activate the change from N18,000 to N30,000.
Recall that the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, Trade Union Congress, TUC, United Labour Congress, ULC, and other labour unions met with the Federal Government yesterday over the minimum wage issue after they threatened a nationwide strike which they later suspended after the meeting.
