National Assembly Workers Begin Strike

Members of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN), Monday morning, made good their threat to embark on strike to press home their demand for payment of their outstanding salaries. Though the Chairman, House Committee on Media and Publicity, Hon. Abdulrazak Namdas, Sunday told THISDAY that efforts were on to appeal to workers not to embark on industrial action, that seems to have yielded no result as workers blocked the main entrance to the National Assembly this morning. Also, contrary to the position of PASAN chairman, Comrade Musa Bature Muhammad, that the industrial action will not prevent workers who wish to work from working, aggrieved members mounted road block at the gate preventing their colleagues from gaining access to the National Assembly complex.

How Mbappe’s World Cup Heroics Changed Neymar’s Attitude

The Brazil international is determined to remain the top dog at Paris Saint-Germain and is ready to change his behaviour off the pitch to do so.   Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr When Neymar left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in August 2017 for a world-record transfer fee of €222 million, one of the reasons for doing so was the prospect of being his new team’s undisputed star player. The tricky attacker often found himself overshadowed by Lionel Messi at Camp Nou, but there was little doubt he would be PSG’s main man – or so it seemed. Yet fast-forward a little over 12 months and Neymar once more finds himself at risk of being outshone by a team-mate, with Kylian Mbappe making as many – if not more – headlines as his illustrious attacking partner. Mbappe played a key ro...
