Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN Suspends Strike

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has resolved to suspend its over two-month strike, effective from next week Monday.

JUSUN took the decision at its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting which just ended in Abuja.

The National Judicial Council (NJC) had, at a meeting with JUSUN leaders on Tuesday, with the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Ibrahim Muhammad in attendance, urged the striking court workers to put an end to the industrial action in the interest of the country and the suffering of court users.

This comes after Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, was said to have earlier approached the CJN to seek his intervention in the matter

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had on May 22, 2020, signed into law, an Executive Order that granted financial autonomy to the legislature and the judiciary across the 36 states of the federation.

However, following the failure of most state governors to comply with the order, JUSUN, had on April 6th embarked on the strike action to demand full financial autonomy for the judiciary.

Annadif in his remarks, said he was visiting shortly after his appointment because he recognized Nigeria’s crucial role in West Africa. He noted that the problems of the Sahel region were not new to him, which is why, more than ever, he would depend on the help of Nigeria to succeed.
