hon-aminu-tambuwal-house-oThe Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honourable Aminu Tambuwal, has appealed to the aggrieved sacked members of staff of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to suspend their protests. This is as the protest by hundreds of disengaged members of staff of the NIMC entered second day on Wednesday. The Speaker promised that the National Assembly would help address their grievances.

It would be recalled that the sacked workers had, in the early hours of Tuesday, stormed the National Assembly Complex in Abuja, where they locked out Senate President, David Mark; Honourable Tambuwal, other lawmakers, staff and visitors alike. It was learnt that, making good their promise, the aggrieved protesters slept on the premises of the National Assembly through Tuesday night and resumed their protest on Wednesday, blocking major entrances to the National Assembly.

They also stayed put till around 2.00 p.m when Honourable Tambuwal, in company with some lawmakers, the clerk of the House, Mr Sanni Omolori Mohammed and security operatives attached to the office of the Speaker trekked from the chamber to the main gate, to appeal to the protesters.

In his address, Tambuwal said “I assure you that the committees of the National Assembly on Labour Matters, Pensions and Inter Governmental Affairs that oversight the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, the supervising office on NIMC, will immediately swing into action to address all these your grievances… Based on the findings, the leadership of National Assembly and, on behalf of the Senate President, I am giving you the assurance, we will follow up on this matter.” Immediately after the address, the protesters began to leave the gate.
