News - by RadioNow / Apr. 13th, 2021

The federal government is pleading with striking members of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) to suspend its nationwide industrial action, due to its crippling effect on court activities in the country.

According to the Minister of labour and employment, Senator Chris Ngige, at a reconciliatory meeting between the Federal Government and the leadership of the union in Abuja, judiciary workers, much like doctors and nurses are essential workers and should not be going on strike.

The minister also promised that Executive Order 10 and its application, granting autonomy to the judiciary which is top of the list of the demands of the striking workers will be tackled because it is a constitutional issue. The President of JUSUN, Mr Marwan Adamu, notes that the constitution of the country guides the union in its action, stressing that democracy has to thrive on the rule of law.

Present at the meeting were representatives of the Solicitor General of Nigeria, Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), and Senior Special Assistant to the President on Niger/Delta Affairs, Sen. Eta Enang.

Members of the Judiciary staff union of Nigeria have been on strike since April 6 to protest the non-implementation of the financial autonomy of the nation’s judiciary.
