Minimum wage: Reps proceed on break to Mourn Colleagues, as NASS workers threaten Strike (Updated: Tuesday 13th April 2021, 08:26 PM)


On Tuesday, the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASSAN) threatened to embark on industrial action over the non-implementation of the National Minimum wage and other conditions of service.

However, Members of the House of Representatives have adjourned for one week to mourn dead colleagues.

Haruna Maitala and Suleiman Aliyu Lere passed away while the House was on holiday, the lawmakers have now adjourned plenary for a week, allegedly to mourn.

The Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila in his remark at Tuesday plenary called on the Union to suspend the planned industrial action.

“I want to use this opportunity to appeal to PASAN, that their matter is being looked into, and very soon their matter will be resolved. I know there are pending issues, and hopefully, those issues will be resolved this week.”

Speaking on the two late lawmakers, Gbajabiamila expressed sadness over their passing.

“I met with his family on Sunday. His death was particularly painful. He died together with Hon. Gagdi’s legislative aide and his son. What is even more painful was that he was going to his son’s wedding the following day. He was particularly close to the Deputy Speaker coming from the same state.

“Ditto Hon. Lere. The circumstances of his death were very painful. Many of you knew about his struggles for almost two years. We swore him in a couple of weeks ago. It was a very bitter fight. Only for us to hear that he died last week.”

The House will resume on Tuesday to conduct a valedictory session for Ossy Prestige
