Legislative aides protest non-payment of 22 months salary arrears NATIONAL-ASSEMBLY-NASS



Legislative aides on Wednesday protested the non-payment of 22 months arrears by the management of the National Assembly.

During the protest, the aides chanted that the National Assembly has failed to pay the arrears despite a promise by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila that it will be resolved.

Two weeks ago, the aides staged a protest at the lobby of the National Assembly, and the Speaker addressed them with the promise to ensure prompt payment of the money.

According to Zebis Prince who spoke with journalists, the aides are back due to the inability of the Speaker to resolve the issue.

He alleged that the money for the payment of the allowances was released in 2019.

“We have it on good authority that these salary arrears were duly appropriated and released on first-line charge.

“Unfortunately, what the management of the National Assembly is saying is that this money is no more there. What happened to the money that was released for this purpose? It is either this money has been embezzled or misappropriated.”

The aides are accusing the Clerk of the National Assembly, Olatunji Ojo of refusing to pay the allowances.
