Ojediran also accused the State Government of non-compliance with sections 10 (2), 13, and 14 of Statutory Offices State Emoluments Law 2018 and the State Assembly Service Commission Law 2018

According to him, Clerk of the House, his deputy and Secretary to the State House of Assembly Service Commission are not enjoying allowances and other benefits due to them as provided in the Statutory Offices State Emoluments and that of the State Assembly Service Commission as approved by the immediate past administration of the Senator Ibikunle Amosun

He expressed concern that parliamentary staffers in the state were not enjoying the improved welfare packages in the consolidated salary structure already being enjoyed by their colleagues in Kogi, Zamfara, Gombe and Jigawa States amongst others

mobilized to go on indefinite strike

Continous strike by the workers will destrupt the activities of the lawmakers who will be having their valedictory service for the 9th legislature and inauguration of the 10th legislature
