The Bill had also earlier successfully gone through third reading on Tuesday.

The lawmakers had promised to give an accelerated hearing to the bill to ensure workers start benefitting from the new figure as soon as possible.

The lawmakers in the House of Representatives had earlier adopted the N30, 000 figure as the new minimum wage and their Senate counterparts have now followed suit.
