Activists demand pay cut for NASS

Youths marched to the National Assembly, Thursday asking the legislature to reduce money allocated to it and do something to help end the lingering Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) strike that has kept university students at home for months.

The youths who marched from the parking lots of the Eagle Square in Abuja to the National Assembly were denied entry at the gate.

When their attention focused on the senators addressing them, the senate president’s convoy zoomed out of the National Assembly to the dismay of the protesters.

One of them, Yemi Adamolekun, told the senators that they wanted the National Assembly to cut its allocation so pressing needs like ASSU’s demands can be met.

She also demanded to know what they had done with 1 trillion naira allocated to them since 2005.

She added that the Nigerian youths want more access to the lawmakers and the attendance register of the legislature to know the absentees among them.

Chairman Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Eyinnaya Abaribe, told the protesters that the money being allocated for the National Assembly is not for lawmakers alone as the salaries of staff of the National Assembly Commission is also included. He added that they are free to get the information they wanted if they write the National Assembly.

He asked them to go and meet ASUU concerning the strike as the National Assembly is doing its best about it.
