I can authoritatively, confirm that His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari has signed into law, the Minimum Wage Repeal and Re-Enactment bill , 2019.

The Act makes it compulsory for all employers across the country to pay workers a minimum of N30,000.

President Muhammadu Buhari assents to the Minimum Wage Repeal and Re-Enactment Bill , 2019 at the Aso Villa in Abuja on April 18, 2019.

It, however, excludes persons employing less than 25 workers or persons in other kinds of regulated employment.

The Act gives workers the right to sue an employer to recover the balance or authorise the Minister of Labour to take action against such an employer in the event of a refusal to pay the stipulated wage.
