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.

According to them, their grievance is directed at the Clerk of the National Assembly, Mr. Sani Omolori.

The placard-carrying protesters were stationed inside the National Assembly complex and blocked the entrance of the legislative chambers, while some of the workers were heard chanting “no pay, no sitting”.

When the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, arrived at the Assembly, he was prevented from going into the Senate chamber with the workers chanting “no sitting”.

The angry workers also prevented him from addressing them.
