Workers Shut Niger House Of Assembly

The Niger State House of Assembly has been shut down by parliamentary workers today as they began a three-day warning strike over non-Payment of their Outfit Allowance.

The strike decision was reached at the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria Congress, chaired by the Chairman Malam Mohammed Sanusi.

Sanusi said that the decision followed the failure by the state government to also pay the Consolidated Salary Structure of 2011 by first quarter of 2022 as agreed with the association.

The workers said no one will be allowed into the building.

“We have three pending issues: the Outfit Allowance paid once a year, the approved Consolidated Salary Structure and the non-payment of legislative duty allowance to some of our colleagues,’’ he said.

Sanusi said also that Gov. Abubakar Sani-Bello approved 50 per cent payment of Outfit Allowance in 2018, but that the money had not been paid ever since.

He noted that while parliamentary workers were not getting their entitlements, judiciary workers were fully paid.
