A group under the auspices of African Leadership Strategy and Transparency Development Initiative, ALSTDI has condemned the call for the stoppage of the revised condition of service in the National Assembly done under the last leadership.
ALSTDI in a statement signed by its Executive Director, Ambassador Nelson Ossaieze, and made available to our correspondent Thursday said the implementation of the reviewed Act should be commended for being a genuine and timely intervention borne out of patriotic zeal to sustain capacity, build a virile institution, and enhance knowledge management and productivity.
Mr. Ossaieze said the group assessment of this amendment revealed that it was in conformity with global best practices and in the collective interest of the National Assembly as an institution.
According to him, the problem is the age long retrogressive antics that has been the bane of most people inability to drive sustainable socio-economic and political development.
Mr. Ossaieze therefore, appealed to Nigerians to always ascertain the veracity of every information in public space especially those put out by merchants of confusion doing the bidding of their paymasters who play on the ignorance of unsuspecting public by riding on the wings of unregulated social media space to further a myopic agenda.
It would be recalled that another group had recently called on the leadership of the National Assembly to stop the implementation of the amended condition of service revised by the 8th Assembly which reviewed the condition of service of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria, PASAN.
