Staff of the National Assembly under the platform of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN), have resolved to embark on a four-day warning strike beginning from tomorrow.
The National Assembly staff took the decision following what they called the management’s attitude towards their plight.
A notice signed by PASAN chairman, Musa Bature Muhammad, said all the National Assembly staff should “stay off their respective duties” from Monday, December 17 to 20, 2018.
The strike would be to drive home their demands, which included prompt payment of all their allowances for several years, payment of promotion arrears, promotion of qualified staff, improvement of conditions of service, among others.
Daily Trust on Sunday reports that the staff had last week Tuesday shut down the federal legislature for hours, preventing senators and members of the House of Representatives from sitting at plenary.
Attempts to get the reaction of the Director of Information at the National Assembly, Mr Rawlings Emmanuel Agada, were not successful as his mobile phone was not connecting.
