President Muhammadu Buhari has signed the new minimum wage bill.

The bill, which has now become a law, will usher in a new pay structure for Nigerian workers.

The National Assembly had passed the bill approving N30,000 as the minimum wage for workers.

State governors had opposed the N30,000 minimum wage with many of them saying they will be unable to pay their workers.

A source at the Presidential Villa confirmed to journalists that Mr Buhari signed the bill today (Thursday).

He also said the president’s aide on National Assembly (Senate), Ita Enang, is meeting with the president and will brief the press later.
