…Seal Entrance, Cut Off Power, Electricity Supplies
National Assembly workers under the umbrella of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) have made good their threat to embark on a four-day strike.
The workers who are demanding mainly for the payment of arrears of 28% increase in their salaries since 2010 stormed the National Assembly in the early hours of Monday blocking all entrance into the complex.
The workers have also cut off essential services like power and water supply; effectively crippling any form of activity within the premises.
The aggrieved workers had two weeks ago shutdown the National Assembly stopping lawmakers from sitting; blaming the Management of the National Assembly for their plight and insisting on the removal of the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sani Omolori.
Although no official statement has come from the management as at the time of filing this report; the Clerk had clearly dropped the blame at the door steps of the executive when he said there has been no releases to implement the worker’ wage increase captured in the 2018 budget.
