The development has triggered many reactions from Nigerians with many of them taking to Twitter to lay bare their points.
Some of them commended Buhari for signing the bill saying it will go along way in helping Nigerian workers.
However, there were some that believe the development will trigger inflation as the Buhari administration will hike the pump price of petroleum.
Concise News captured some of the tweets as seen below:

Nigeria will triumph under Buhari whether haters like it or not. imagine if Buhari was our president all through the wasted 16 years of PDP, Nigeria would have been the best African country.

Finally Nigeria is seeing a significant progress in the aspect of Financing its workers. I hope this change has come to stay. President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the ₦30,000 #MinimumWage

When today @MBuhari signed the #MinimumWage, he scored a major point. I commend him for that! I also congratulate the NLC and all affiliated bodies. Yet, a critical poser is necessary: is N30,000 a living wage?

This N30,000 #MinimumWage will later become an excuse from Federal Government to increase fuel ⛽️ price. Just watch out what this #30kMinimumWage will cause Nigerians in few months to come, but God will lead us.

An increased minimum wage is great, but an increased #MinimumWage in a horrible economy could mean a more horrible standard of living for citizens. Check what will happen with fuel and food price within the next couple of months.

Congratulations Naija on the new #MinimumWage.
But please, may I ask, where will the money come from? Is Peter about to be robbed so Paul can get paid? Or have we now balanced our trade deficit?

Inicreasing the minimuim wage will be a plus to the citizens only if the ecomony is performing well. If not, even an increase to N50k will be rubbish if the cost of living keeps increasing and the economy keeps perfoming poorly.#MinimumWage

I commend @MBuhari for signing into law the N30,000 Minimum Wage Bill passed by the National Assembly.Recall that Buhari & some state governors had in the Executive Bill sought the approval of N27,000. @nassnigeria amended Clause 3(1) to effect the N30,000 approval. #MInimumWage

I'm not a hater but this #MinimumWage Issue is why fuel price is about to be hiked. Price of market goods will increase and the 30k will become useless 🙄

I just want to remind Nigerian leaders that N30,000 which is a monthly payment is equivalent to $111.48 Canadian Dollars. Which is approximately 8 hours wages if one is earning minimum wage in Canada. We must do better!!! #MinimumWage #Nigeria #Labour #Buhari https://t.co/4ZzEuh87am
