Workers at the Osun State House of Parliament on Tuesday joined colleagues across the country to boycott the work, protesting against the refusal to grant assemblies across the country financial autonomy.
The workers, under the auspices of the Osun parliamentary association from Nigeria, while declaring industrial action, said that it was in accordance with the directive of the national secretariat.
Speaking at the assembly complex, Speaker Adesina Adekunle said the strike was aimed at ensuring the implementation of Executive Order 10, signed last year by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The workers of the Osun Assembly must abide by the directives of the national body in order to open the way for the autonomy of the legislative power.
“We will ensure full compliance with the directive of the national secretariat in an effort to ensure that the Assembly is financially autonomous,” he said.
Before leaving their duties, the assembly workers demonstrated and carried posters with various inscriptions, such as: “Autonomy: There is no going back; Financial separation, among other things, means separation of powers and service to democracy. “
