Nigeria’s judiciary workers suspend strike, ready to resume Court


The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has resolved to suspend its over two-month strike.

The suspension according to JUSUN will be effective as from June 14, 2021.

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

JUSUN had on April 6, ordered its members across the federation to shut all courts in the country to press home its demand for implementation of financial autonomy for the judiciary.

When he was contacted, media aide to the CJN, Mr. Ahuraka Isah, further confirmed the report, adding that JUSUN has already directed its members to resume work on Monday.

“Upon being briefed by the Minister on the negotiation level so far, the CJN then requested the JUSUN to call off the strike in the interest of the nation and the larger interest of justice.

“The CJN added that it would also allow opportunity for further negations towards the  resolution of the dispute.

“Besides, the CJN observed that some of the issues in contention are already sub judice, as such there is need to give requisite legal process enough opportunity to be exhausted”, Isah stated shortly after Justice Muhammad’s meeting with the Labour Minister.(GVE)
