Members of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria have cut supply of water to the National Assembly in compliance with the ongoing indefinite strike initiated by the organised labour.


PASAN which is under the Nigeria Labour Congress temporarily suspended electricity and water supply to the two structures accommodating the Senate and the House of Representatives, along with other amenities within the National Assembly compound.


Meanwhile, federal workers under the aegis of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) and their affiliates also shut activities at the Radio House arm of the Ministry of Information.

Labour leaders dressed in red uniforms stood guard at the main entrance into the building to ensure no staff gains access into the complex.


In a related development, the leadership of the Labour Party has called on both the Federal Government and the Organised Labour, to return to the negotiation table, and arrive at an acceptable position for the sake of suffering Nigerians

A statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, noted that Nigeria has been thrown into darkness, hospitals shut and water pipes drained in just a few hours into the strike, thereby throwing Nigerians into yet another hardship.

It opined that both the government and the labour need to shift grounds, and have a meeting point to relieve the masses of the suffering that the industrial action had generated.
