PDP National Secretariat: now dirty as cleaners go on strike

For the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), bad times are not just being felt on the political terrain, with the massive defections of members countrywide, they are also being felt at the party’s national secretariat, Abuja as blue collar workers embark on strike.

The workers, mostly cleaners and messengers boycotted work from Tuesday over the non-payment of their salaries. They said they are being owed for three months on a salary range of N14,000 a month.

The Dailytrust.com reported that the workers commenced the strike after all other means to get their pay failed to yield positive results.

The party’s national secretariat was very dirty on Thursday as a result of the strike.

“One of the workers told Daily Trust that their major fear is that since the PDP had been defeated in the March 28 presidential election, the party may not settle them even though they had done their job.

“I am tired of this place. We have decided that strike is the best option for us now because they don’t want to pay us. You can see how the environment is today. We are not working.
“We are collecting only N14,000 each from the party as monthly salary but they have not paid us for the past three months, and you know we are very junior staff. We don’t have long legs like others and we can’t carry placards or banners to protest, so we want our salaries paid,” he said.
He called on the party’s national chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu to address the situation, describing it as sad and unfortunate.
