Legislative Workers Want Parliamentary University.

Members of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) have charged the federal government to facilitate the setting up of PASAN University of Nigeria to boost parliamentary performance for the whole of Africa.

PASAN president, Fatai Jimoh, made the call at the Labour House in Abuja during the 5th National Executive Council meeting of the union where he said that establishing a parliamentary university in the country will deepen Africa’s democracy.

Speaking on staff welfare, he urged the Clerk of the National Assembly to ensure the implementation of the Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure (CONLESS) for parliamentary workers and facilitate payment of housing and outfit allowances in bulk once a year.

PASAN also urged management of the National Assembly to comply with PENCOM Act 2004 and on the need for training and retraining of staff to ensure optimum utilisation of available human resource.

Director of Human Resources of the National Assembly, Ishaya Habu, who represented the clerk at the event, said management will continue to ensure that welfare of workers is adequately protected.

On his part, Acting General Secretary of NLC, Chris Uyot, commended the NEC for giving quality leadership to PASAN, and urged members to respect the provisions of their constitution if they must move forward.
