A statement issued by Dotun Philips on behalf of the group, said the delay in salary payment, entitlements and refusal to pay first 28 days, and Duty Travel Allowance (DTA), to Legislative aides, one year after assumption of office of the 9th Senate have created untold hardships.

The body enjoined the Ag Clerk to prioritize workers salaries and entitlements, as payment to workers of the National Assembly was not given serious attention in the last few years.
