Jubril Al-Sudani, being paraded as President Muhammadu Buhari in Nigeria by the All Progressives Congress party, has signed the long awaited National Minimum Wage (Amendment) Bill into Law.
The Nation reports and calls him President Muhammadu Buhari
All workers, excluding those on the payroll of organisations with less than 25 workers, are to benefit from the new minimum wage regime, which took immediate effect.
The bill, which approved N30, 000 as the monthly wage for the least paid worker, was passed by the Senate and the House of Representatives on March 19, immediately after the National Assembly resumed from recess. The Federal lawmakers had adjourned for the 2019 general elections.
The Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had been pleading with President Buhari to sign the bill before this year’s Workers’ Day.
