The Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria has urged Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun to address the welfare package and demands of staffers of the Ogun State House of Assembly before May 31, 2023.
The demands include full implementation of the Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure CONLESS, to Staffers in the state house of assembly and house of assembly service
In a letter dated May 9 signed by the Secretary-General, Awobifa Hammed, the association also demanded full compliance with the provisions of the Ogun State House of Assembly Service Commission Law, 2018 and Statutory Office (State Emolument) Amendment 2018.
In the letter, a copy of which was made available to journalists on Monday, the apex body expressed concern that three different correspondences from the State chapter of PASAN on the agitations have “not been responded to till date despite workers: plea.”
PASAN expressed shock that the Clerk/Head of Legislative Service, the Deputy Clerk and Executive Secretary Assembly Service Commission “who are it’s members were not only denied their due salaries, in consonance with Ogun State Assembly Service Commission Law, 2018 section 10 (2)13 and 14 but also other allowances attached to their office as well were equally denied.”
The association said the demand would only place the assembly workers on the same pedestal with their counterparts in the State Judiciary who have been on the Consolidated Judicial Salary
Structure (CONJESS) about a decade.
The body called on Abiodun to address the demands before May 31 or risk industrial crisis in the state.
“Sir, Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) as a National Umbrella
of all workers working in all Houses of Assembly and their Commissions,
always conducts background checks on activities on appointment process and
procedures in conformity with Assembly Service Commission Laws and other
“Its therefore alarming, shocking and strange when discovered that the Clerk/Head of Legislative Service, the Deputy Clerk and Executive Secretary Assembly Service Commission who are all our members were not only denied their due salaries, in consonance with Ogun State Assembly Service Commission Law, 2018 section 10 (2)13 and 14 but other allowances attached to their office as well were equally denied.
“Consequent upon the earlier appeal cum request of Ogun State Chapter of
PASAN demanding the full implementation of CONLESS and all attached allowances in their letters of March, 2013, the National Leadership wish to reiterate our strong support for the clarion call that “Their demands be
attended to on or before 31 of May, 2023” which its failure may allow Our
union to pursue the goal from other legitimate actions available.
“Sir, while still appealing through this medium that you use your good office to
address this issue in time, please accept our unflinching regard.”
