Financial autonomy: Osun Assembly workers begin indefinite strike

 To drive home their demand for financial autonomy for the state Houses of Assembly, the Osun chapter of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) has embarked on an indefinite strike.

While addressing the media at the state House of Assembly Complex in Abere, the Osun PASAN Chairman, Adesina Adekunle, said the state chapter had to comply with the directive from the national body to pave way for the state government to domesticate the Executive Order 10 signed by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2020.

He revealed that the PASAN national chairman had in the early hours of Tuesday directed all parliamentary staff in the country to embark on an indefinite strike. 

In his words, “The Osun Assembly workers have complied with the directive of the national body to pave way for the autonomy of the Houses of Assembly.

“We in the Osun State House of Assembly are in full support of the strike action as we join other State Houses of Assembly workers across the federation.”

He called on the state governor to domesticate the President’s Executive Order 10 to enable democracy thrive in the state.

DAILY POST recalled that Executive Order 10 was signed by President Buhari in 2020 and it allowed for State Houses of Assembly to be financially independent.
