Workers of the National Assembly staged a protest today demanding payment of their wages. The workers also blocked the entrance into the legislative chambers.
Some of the workers claim they are being owed wages from as far back as 2010. They also alleged that funds meant for training had been diverted.
Carrying banners and placards, some of the workers were heard chanting “no pay, no sitting”.
When the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, arrived at the Assembly, he was prevented from going into the Senate chamber with the workers chanting “no sitting”.
