Lawan charges NASS workers to call off strike, embrace dialogue

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has urged National Assembly workers to call off their industrial action and instead, embrace dialogue for the speedy resolution of the disputes.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser (Media), Ola Awoniyi, Lawan appealed at a meeting which he summoned to find a way out of the lingering issues between the workers and the management of the National Assembly.

Workers of the National Assembly under the aegis of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) had embarked on an indefinite strike since Monday to press home their demands for payment of some allowances.

Lawan said, “I want to urge you, whenever we disagree, let’s try to come and sit and talk about it because when we talk, we can find some common grounds and solutions. I am very happy that we have been able to deal with this.”
