The police have refused workers entry into the national assembly.

The national assembly workers under the aegis of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) commenced a four-day strike on Monday.

They also cut off off water and power supply to the premises.

While milling around the entrance of the national assembly on Tuesday, TheCable overheard some of the workers accusing their colleagues of betraying their resolve to paralyse activities at the complex.

The workers are demanding to be paid outstanding salaries and allowances. The workers also want to be put on the Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure (CONLESS).

Following the commencement of the strike, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, clerk of the assembly, said the leadership had asked the police and Department of State Services (DSS) to secure the premises of the assembly ahead of Tuesday’s sitting.

“Senators and members of the house of representives, their aides, other workers and people who have legitimate business within the national assembly complex are therefore advised to come in as they will be free to operate without any hinderance and molestation,” Sani-Omolori said in a statement on Monday.

“If the President Buhari is unable to present the budget proposal on Wednesday as scheduled Nigerians should hold the security agencies responsible for failing in the performance of their duties.”
