National Assembly shut down as PASAN embarks on indefinite strike

Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) has embarked on an indefinite strike, demanding full implementation of their revised condition of service.

It should be recalled that PASAN had in May 2020 written to the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, appealing to them to wade into a brewing crisis occasioned by an alleged plot to stop the implementation of the revised condition of service for members.

He said members of the group have decided to shut down activities of the National Assembly until their needs are met.
