The minimum wage repeal and re-enactment act has been signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari today, 18 April, 2019.
This was revealed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.
While speaking to news men, Senator Enang stated that the Act makes it compulsory for all employers across the country to pay workers a minimum of N30,000. This however excludes persons employing less than 25 workers and also persons in other kinds of employment which are regulated.
Speaking further, the senator explained that the Act gives workers the right to sue an employer to recover balance.
The act also enables workers to authorise the Minister of Labour to take action against an amployer that refuses to pay salaries.
