9th Assembly Minimum wage Arears: Group Pass Vote of Confidence on CNA

…Asks To Offset DTA, Salary Arears

The Assembly Watch, a non- governmental organization NGO has passed a vote of confidence on the Clerk to the National Assembly, CNA, Magaji Tambuwal by matching words with actions over payment of arears of minimum wage of 32 months to the 9th Assembly legislative aides, describing the action as historic.

In a statement issued by Suleiman Mohammed on behalf of the body, he asked the CNA to take step to also pay the lingering salary arears, Duty Tour Allowance DTA, among others to the out gone aides.

He said Tambuwal had broken records of transparent and reliable leadership, who stood by his words that all due allowances will be off set even after the end of their term in office.

It is unique and quality leadership at work, as the decision was rare in recent times, paying former aides their entitlements, expressing confidence that payment of the remaining arears and severence package will not take a long time.

He urged those in the leadership positions to take cue from the Clerk to the National Assembly, asking public officers to emulate his good virtues and accountable gesture.
