Judiciary Staff to embark on three-day strike

By Demola Akinyemi

Ilorin—Members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, have concluded plans to embark on a three-day warning strike, from March 12 to March 14, over the refusal of both federal and state governments to comply with the Federal High Court, Abuja’s order on the union’s financial autonomy.

This is contained in a communiqué issued at the end of the National Executive Council, NEC, meeting of the union in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, on Monday.

The Federal High Court had early this year ruled that the federal and state governments’ “failure, neglect and or refusal to pay the funds/amount standing to the credit of the states’ judiciary in the federation/consolidated revenue fund directly to the heads of courts in the various states’ judiciary is a constitutional breach which has to be abated forthwith.”
