National Assembly workers suspend strike


Workers in the country’s national assembly under the aegis of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria have ended their strike action that has crippled activities at the parliament since the last two weeks.

The workers were protesting unpaid allowances owed to them.

Speaking to the members of the association at the National Assembly gate on Tuesday, Chairman, PASAN, National Assembly chapter, Sunday Sabiyi, announced that the strike action has been suspended until further notice.

He explained that the Association’s National President has assured that they would get the unpaid allowances by the end of June.

He maintained that the Senate President Ahmed Lawan has also given his words that he would call a town hall meeting after the allowances have been paid to address their grievances.

Sabiyi however noted that the association will embark on another strike action if the promises are not fulfilled.
