A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted the signing of the new national minimum wage bill into law by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Naija News had reported earlier that the President signed the new national minimum wage bill into law on Thursday, April 18.

This online news platform recalls that the Nigerian Senate approved and passed the sum of N30,000 as the new minimum wage for Nigerian workers on March 19.
