NASS workers begin indefinite strike Jan. 10
Workers of National Assembly under the auspices of National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) and the National Assembly chapters of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) will be embarking on a strike from Monday January 10.

In a communique jointly signed by the chairman of NASS, Sunday Sabiyi and the vice chairman of NASC, M. A. Liman and released on Thursday January 6, the workers said they are embarking on a strike in protest of the alleged breach of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with management on the full implementation of the new National Minimum Wage Act 2019 and the Revised Conditions of Service.
