Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly who doubles as the National Treasurer of the Conference of State Legislature Speakers, Rt. Hon. Matthew Kolawole has appealed to the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) to remain calm as the issues at stake are already being handled at the highest level.
He made the appeal in a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Femi Olugbemi and made available to newsmen in Lokoja.
He said though the staff association is excisercing its constitutional right of embarking on industrial action anytime they feel aggrieved but enjoined them to see reasons with the authorities as the issue will soon be resolved.
He said the existing cordial working relationship of all the arms of governments in the state is a deliberate effort of Governor Yahaya Bello’s genuine intention to accord everyone their rightful place, urging them to call off the strike and return to work for the progress and benefits of the state.
He noted that as one of the national officers of the Conference of State Legislature Speakers, he is aware of the great efforts put in place by the Governor’s Forum to commence the implementation of the Autonomy law.
