Delta State Assembly Workers On Strike Over Unpaid Salaries


The Delta State House of Assembly was shut down indefinitely on Wednesday by workers under the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) over unpaid approved salaries and other issues. The striking workers locked out the Speaker and lawmakers, halting legislative activities.

The workers are demanding payment of the Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure (CONLESS), which was approved three years ago but has yet to be implemented. They are also seeking regularization of casual staff, training, and funding of the Assembly’s clinic.

In a communiqué signed by PASAN’s state chairman, Emmanuel Edozie, and secretary, Emmanuel Osubor, the workers expressed disappointment and frustration with the leadership’s “delay tactics” and lack of political will to address their entitlements.

The communiqué recalled that a previous strike was suspended in February due to the intervention of the Conference of Speakers and the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, which promised to implement financial autonomy and payment. However, the committee set up by the governor to address the issues has yet to make progress after two months.
