Workers in Nigeria’s national assembly Tuesday ended their strike that has crippled activities at the parliament.
The workers were protesting unpaid allowances owed to them. “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 chairman of the National Assembly chapter of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, Sunday Sabiyi, said.
“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.”
