Financial Autonomy For State Legislatures Will Aid Good Governance-PASAN

Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) has insisted that only  the implementation of financial autonomy for the State Legislatures and judiciary would sustain democratic practice in the country

The union stressed the need to ensure  symbiotic relationship and unhindered independence of the operations of the three arms of government.

The National President of (PASAN) Comrade Muhammed Usman, represented by the South West Zonal Vice President , Barr. Adu-Peters Oluwasegun, made this known during a solidarity visit to Ogun State on the ongoing strike by workers of the State Houses of Assembly in compliance with the directive of the national leadership of the association concerning the non-implementation of the Executive Order 10 signed  by President Muhammadu Buhari. 

He stressed that the industrial action was being carried out in the best interest of the nation's democracy and not for pecuniary interest.

The PASAN Vice-President explained that the holistic implementation would bring about a more vibrant legislative arm across the States, as it would boost their operations and activities towards ensuring that the people feel the impact of democracy.

The Zonal Vice President who 
reiterated that the strike action by the PASAN members nationwide remained indefinite, expressed optimism that the upcoming meeting of the Conference of Speakers was capable of engaging necessary stakeholders including the Nigerian Governors' Forum towards addressing the grey areas in the implementation of the financial autonomy for State Legislatures. 

On the benefits of the implementation, he noted that both the judiciary and legislative arms of government at the State level would witness a new dawn through financial enablement to further strengthen democratic practice. 

Earlier in his welcome address, the Chairman, PASAN, State Chapter, Comrade James Obanla lauded the workers for their commitment and compliance with the industrial action.
