Aides to members of the National Assembly, under the auspices of the National Assembly Legislative Aides Forum , have decried the discrimination in their salaries and allowances while demanding equal treatment with members of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria .
Chairman of NASSLAF , Salisu Zuru , argued that both aides and workers in the National Assembly management are employees of the National Assembly Service Commission .
A statement issued by the Public Relations Officer, NASSLAF, Abdul Lauya , quoted Zuru as stating the demand during a courtesy call on the Chairman of the NASC , Ahmed Amshi .
Zuru was quoted as saying legislative aides are remunerated in accordance with the 2010 Consolidated Legislative Salary Structure instead of the revised 2018 version being enjoyed by members of PASAN .
The NASSLAF leader , therefore, urged the commission to take immediate steps to correct the anomaly.
Amshi , in his response , was quoted to have said legislative aides were employees of the commission and must not be treated otherwise .
Meanwhile , the Clerk to the National Assembly, Olatunde Ojo , has also assured NASSLAF of the payment of statutory entitlements as well as outstanding allowances owed some of its members .
