The National Assembly Chapter of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) is holding an emergency Congress today, Monday 12, in Abuja.

This is coming to navigate way over the recent agitations for better welfare of members, as it is also expected to review the outcome of a recent meeting between PASAN executives and the management of the National Assembly.

The spokesperson of PASAN, Amos Ekpeyong, said, “we are having our congress to discuss the position of the Clerk of the National Assembly, Ojo Olatunde, on issues of welfare affecting our members.”

PASAN, earlier, had given a range of ultimatum beginning with 21 days, 14 days and 7 days to the management of the National Assembly to implement the new federal minimum wage and to effect the Consolidated Legislative Staff Salary Structure (COLASS) for staff.

“Following the outcome of today’s Congress, we may shut down the National Assembly on Wednesday (April 14) if the Clerk, Ojo Olatunde, refuses to cede to our demands)”, he further stated.

More so, the Association also demands for payment of backlogs of minimum wage arrears owed staff, arrears for staff conversion, and payment of promotion arrears to members.
