Courts shut as judiciary workers begin nationwide strike

Courts across the nation were shut down Tuesday, as judiciary workers under the aegis of Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria begin indefinite strike.

The national leadership of JUSUN, said the strike action is to press home their demand for the financial autonomy of the judiciary.

In a circular signed by JUSUN’s General Secretary, I. M. Adetola, all states and zonal heads of the union were directed to comply with the strike action.

JUSUN had on March 13, 2021, at its National Executive MEETING held in Abuja, issued a 21-day ultimatum to the government to implement the financial autonomy of the judiciary.

The union, while handing the ultimatum threatened that failure to comply, “JUSUN will have no other option but to resume the suspended national strike action.”

FOX CHANNEL NEWS learnt that the strike action was earlier slated to commence on Monday April 5 but was moved to Tuesday April 6 due to the Easter holiday.

The judiciary strike action will no doubt add to the woes of Nigerians whose access to healthcare has already been impaired by the ongoing strike by the resident doctors.
