    Recall that Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, (PASAN), had on 23rd March, 2021 sealed the entrance to the Yobe State House of Assembly Complex in Damaturu, thereby truncating activities of the lawmakers.

    PASAN Chairman, Yobe State Chapter, Comrade Zanna Ali, noted that the move was in solidarity with the directives from the National Body of the Association to embark on an indefinite strike action in response to the non-implementation of the Financial Autonomy act of 2018 and Presidential Order 10 of 2020 by the federal government.
