 JUSUN Snubs CJN’s Plea, Continues Strike


Members of the Judiciary Staff
Union of Nigeria have vowed to continue the ongoing strike in spite of the plea
by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Muhammad, for them to call off
the strike.

The leadership of the union made
their position known in a communique signed by the National Deputy President,
Emmanuel Abioye, and the General Secretary, Isaiah Adetola, after its National
Executive Council meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.

Recall that the Minister of
Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, had met with the CJN on Tuesday.

Consequently, the CJN had urged
the striking union to call off the strike.

While the union commended the
efforts of the CJN, the minister, and others in bringing an end to the strike,
it however insisted that the strike would continue.

According to the communique, the
union stated that it would continue with the ongoing industrial action until
the provision of the constitution in contention is fully complied with as the
provisions of the constitution are non-negotiable.

JUSUN also resolved to deal with
any state found not fully complying with its directive on the ongoing strike
action while commending members to remain resolute.

The Union also warned that its
members should not be victimized as a result of the ongoing strike action and
expressed displeasure with some of the Chief Judges for working against the
fight for financial autonomy.

It also condemned the decision of
the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai in declaring the Chairman of the
Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba, wanted.

In the same vein, JUSUN also
expressed its displeasure with the Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi and
called for the immediate payment of the withheld salary and dues accruing to
the union.
