The Presidency recently revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari has not put pen to paper on the National Minimum Wage Bill recently passed by the National Assembly into law, a opposed to rumors circulating that he has.
The Senate had on March 19 passed the bill, approving N30,000 as the new national minimum wage.
By so doing, the Senate accepted the decision of the House of Representatives which first passed the bill before going on break for the 2019 elections.
Days back, rumors began to circulate that Buhari had signed it but Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang has refuted those rumors.
His words, “The bill has been transmitted to Mr President; that I can confirm.
“Right now, the bill is undergoing standard presidential, operational procedures in respect of bills.
“We are within time. At the appropriate time, Mr President will take a decision and make it public.
“Therefore, the report that Mr President has already signed the bill is not correct.”
