Senate President Saraki Sues National Assembly Workers

Nigeria’s Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki has sued workers of the National Assembly for embarking on an industrial action over unpaid allowances.

In a an ex-parte motion issued by the National Industrial Court of Nigeria in Abuja, and which was signed by the Assistant Chief Registrar, Hauwa Yakubu, Esq., the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara sought a restraining order stopping the workers under the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) from proceeding on strike.

The “order of interim injunction”, issued through suit No. NICN/ABJ/360/2018 dated 18th December, 2018, directed the leadership of PASAN and their agents to refrain from proceeding on strike.

The Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria in the National Assembly on Monday embarked on a four-day warning strike over unpaid allowances to the tune of N2.7 billion.

  1. See his stupid face! Even you that collects a bloated salary and allowances go on recess whenever you choose to frustrate the Executive, now that 'the little people' want to show their frustrations, you sabi where law dey. Nama like you.

  2. This is the sort of heartless individual Nigerians want to help his party come into power? We have the sickest men in power.

  3. It is called "give us our share"
    They see billions in ghana must go going round
    So they have to mention billions now.

    Oburo unu na ha chusia nta, unu anwunye ha iko; not when you go hunting with them, you give them the
    smallest rat.

  4. See d person who wants to be president

  5. I think the headline is misleading. Seeking a restraining order is different from 'sueing'. Lawyers in the house, help us give more explanation.

    1. She used a headline a lot of people can relate to.

      In a nutshell Saraki has gone to court to ask the court to restrain staffs of National Assembly from proceeding on an industrial action to press home their statutory allowances.

      As a senator, your quarterly allowance is #42m. As a Senate president, the figure is much higher and you get paid always on time. Yet, as the Chairman of National Assembly Service Commission, the welfare of staffs doesn't bother you.

      Since 2015, quarterly allowance of Legislative aides haven't been paid, no training whatsoever and PASAN staffs have been suffering in silence while you allegedly "share dollars" all in a bid to become party presidential flag bearer.

      I'll rather stop here but be assured that what goes around comes around around. No amount of intimidation from court will stop workers from fighting for their rights. You may chose to ignore but they will continue to shout/fight. Aluta Continua.

  6. They are supposed to do the suing not you
