The Progressive Students Movement (PSM), a Pan-African Students group has praised President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the New Minimum Wage Bill into Law.
Yesterday, Buhari signed the Minimum Wage Repeal and Re-enactment Bill 2019 into law and it is to take effect from April 18.
The President of PSM in Nigeria, Mr Bestman Okereafor did the praising in Enugu State.
PSM said the move is going to make Nigerian workers enjoy the fruit of their labour.
His words, “The attention of the leadership of the PSM has been drawn to the decision of President Buhari to sign into law the Minimum Wage Repeal and Re-Enactment Act, 2019.
“By this Act, the new minimum wage is now N30,000. PSM considers this as a progressive minded decision, considering what is obtainable in other countries in Africa and the World.
“Information at our disposal reveals that President Buhari assented to the Act on Thursday in Abuja, mandating all employers of labour across the country to pay workers a minimum of N30,000 monthly wage.”
