PASAN hails 5yrs extension of service for members
Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, PASAN, has thrown its weight behind the extension of service by five years for the National Assembly and the State Houses of Assemblies staff members.
This is contained in a communique signed by the National President,  Comrade Mohammed Usman and Secretary General, Comrade Hammed Awobifa respectively, after the 19th National Executive Council, NEC meeting of the association held Thursday in Abuja.
The communique added that the  NEC in session, however, berated the speakers of the State Houses of Assembly for not pressuring their state governors to sign the local government autonomy bills into law.
It also informed that a wide range of issues affecting the welfare of members and the progress of the financial autonomy for the legislature were deliberated upon by the association.
At the end of deliberation, the Council commends the National Executive Council, NEC, the Central Working Committee, CWC, and chapters of the union for their unalloyed support, resilience and steadfastness to the struggle for Financial Autonomy.
“National Executive Council, NEC in session is displeased at the breach of the Memorandum of Action, MoA entered with the Governors Forum by the Governors.
 “National Executive Council, NEC in session is disappointed at the Speakers of the Houses of Assemblies lackadaisical attitude for failing to pass the necessary legislations, and for their inability to influence the Governors to sign same and set up necessary apparatus for the proper implementation of the autonomy.
“National Executive Council, NEC in session frowns at the victimization  of our members in Rivers State, whose salaries were slashed for  participating in the lawful industrial action as directed by the union  and granted by the extant labour laws. NEC therefore calls on the  Rivers State.  Government should refund the slashed salaries,” the communique said.
