“After joint consultation between House of Representative and Senate, an agreement was reached in 2013 that each disengaged staff be paid one year salary as take home severance allowance.
“Up till now, we are yet to be settled or reinstated.
“We believe that the Almighty God, would guide Mr President and give him the gracious mind to consider our plight , as well as give it the urgent attention it deserves,” said Balarabe.
He said about 4029 staff were affected nationwide, out of which 116 reside in Bauchi state.
