Aggrieved workers of the Taraba State House of Assembly sealed the entrance gate of the Assembly on Monday over unpaid outfit allowance.
The workers embarked on an indefinite strike over seven years of unpaid outfit allowance and vowed not to allow peace to reign until allowances are settled.
At the time of filing this report, legislative activities had been paralyzed, as lawmakers were not allowed access to the Assembly premises.
The strike is coming barely a few days before the presentation of the 2023 budget by the state governor.
The state chairman of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN), Ibrahim Bala Yusuf, said the governor’s lukewarm attitudes towards their plights had dwindled the morale of the Assembly workers.
He called on the critical stakeholders from the state of wade in by urging the governor to do the needful.
“The leadership of the union has resolved to make themselves sacrificial lambs for their colleagues.
“This gate will continue to remain locked pending when those concerned are willing to pay us our outfit allowance,” he said.
