President Buhari approves N30,000 minimum wage

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the N30,000 minimum wage recommended by the tripartite committee.

He made this known when he received the report of the committee on the review of the national minimum wage at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

President Buhari said, “We will continue to engage you all in closing any open areas presented in this report. I therefore would like to ask for your patience and understanding in the coming weeks”

Organised labour had announced a strike action that was to begin on Tuesday, but it was later suspended after an agreement was reached.

From N18,000 to N30,000, will this new minimum wage make any difference for ordinary Nigerian workers? You will find a few answers in these Twitter reactions:
