He addressed workers at the gate on Tuesday, saying the strike would be suspended till further notice.

Sabiyi said, “Our National President has spoken and we have heard, they said by July, we would get approval and complete the implementation and the allowances would be paid by the end of June.

“The Senate President said after the allowances have been paid by June ending, he would call for a town hall meeting. If he doesn’t call for the town hall meeting, we will call for another strike action.

“For this reason, we have suspended the strike action for now. So, everybody should go and rest, have your bathe and resume the day’s activities.”

The workers embarked on the strike action last Monday, which paralysed activities at the National Assembly for a week.
