Developing Story: National Assembly Workers Shut Down Assembly Complex Over Unpaid Salaries

Staff members of the National Assembly are presently protesting what they said is unpaid wages and lack of due promotion.

According to them, 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”.
