National President of PASAN, Comrade Mohammed Usman, who gave two weeks ultimatum to the assembly to clear the said allowance arears, decried the failure of the state government to pay staff their allowances describing it as unfortunate.

He said: “It is so unfortunate that an office of such magnitude that staff are being denied of their right, the national would not take it, we will fight this thing to see that they are addressed.
