Lawan In Emergency Meeting With National Assembly Workers

 

Lawan Announces Fresh Appointments For Senators As He Rejigs Senate Committees

2023 Presidential aspirant and incumbent Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, is currently in a closed-door meeting with executives of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria.

Reports reaching Naija News at the moment revealed that journalists were restrained from covering the meeting despite being invited earlier.

The meeting was said to have started at about 4:30 PM on Friday after Lawan arrived at the National Assembly complex.

Naija News recalls that PASAN had embarked on an indefinite strike on Monday, June 6. The parliamentary staff embarked on the industrial action to protest further delay in fully implementing their revised service condition.

PASAN had about a year ago, suspended its indefinite strike to allow the implementation of the Memorandum of Action.

The Parliamentary staff had in May 2020 written to 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.

However, the lawmakers despite another chance given them to do the needful reportedly failed to implement the service conditions.

A member of PASAN EXCO who hinted about their ordeal in a conversation with newsmen during the week, said members of the group have decided to shut down activities of the National Assembly until their needs are met.
