Eight days after embarking on strike over the non-payment of a backlog of salaries and allowances by the management, National Assembly workers under the auspices of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria have suspended their strike action.
The action which commenced last Monday (6th of July) was on Tuesday put on hold.
The strike halted activities at the National Assembly for a week.
Earlier, PASAN issued the strike notice via a statement issued by its Secretary-General, Hammed Awobifa.
However, the Chairman, PASAN, National Assembly chapter, Sunday Sabiyi, who addressed the members at the gate today said the strike would be suspended till further notice.
He said, “Our National President has spoken and we have heard, they said by July, we would get approval and complete the implementation and the allowances would be paid by the end of June.
“The Senate President said after the allowances have been paid by June ending, he would call for a town hall meeting. If he doesn’t call for the town hall meeting, we will call for another strike action.
“For this reason, we have suspended the strike action for now. So, everybody should go and rest, have your bathe and resume the day’s activities.”
