Nasarawa State House of Assembly has regularised the appointment of more than 100 casual staff.
The acting Clerk of the parliament, Ibrahim Musa, presented the letters of appointment to the beneficiaries in Lafia, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.
Musa urged the employees on selfless service to justify the confidence reposed on them by the government.
“There is no more casual staff in Nasarawa State House of Assembly,” said Mr Musa, commending Governor Abdullahi Sule and the speaker, Ibrahim Abdullahi.
The clerk said some casual staff had served for over 15 years in the house.
“On behalf of the management and staff of the house, we sincerely thank Governor Abdullahi Sule for graciously approving the appointments of our casual staff into permanent staff, all of them, over a hundred of them. Our appreciation also goes to our amiable speaker, Ibrahim Abdullahi, who stood firm to ensure that no special slot or external candidate came from outside.
“And this has helped to see that all the casual staff succeed and today I’m happy to say that we have no single casual staff left in the state assembly,” Musa said.
The acting clerk also urged the newly employed staff to live above board while discharging their duties.
The chair of the Parliamentary Staff Association, Suleiman Oshafu, lauded the action of the Nasarawa governor and the speaker.
