There are indications that the Anambra State House of Assembly Complex in Awka may reopen for legislative business on Thursday, April 18, 2024. Despite an ongoing strike by the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN), the House is poised to resume sessions.

The strike, which began on March 28, 2024, has led to the closure of the assembly offices, and delaying the resumption of legislative activities. However, negotiations between PASAN and the state government have been ongoing.

Members of PASAN are demanding the full implementation of autonomy for the legislature, along with the payment of allowances dating back to 2019. Despite the strike, some assembly workers have defied the industrial action and continued working.

Key figures within the assembly, including the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Somtochukwu Nkemakonam Udeze, and principal officers, have been engaged in discussions to resolve the impasse. Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo has also been actively involved in seeking a resolution.

Lawmakers, who recently returned from the Easter break, express hope that the strike will be resolved soon, allowing the House to reconvene for its constitutional duties. Despite the challenges, there is optimism that dialogue will lead to a swift resolution of the standoff.

Overall, there is a likelihood that the Anambra State House of Assembly will resume plenary on Thursday, pending the resolution of the ongoing strike by assembly workers.
