JUSUN begins indefinite strike in Nasarawa
Nasarawa State chapter of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has begun indefinite strike following the failure of the chief judge (CJ) to meet their demands on welfare issues.
The chairman, Jimoh Musa, told newsmen yesterday in Lafia said that the union rejected the scrapping of the Customary Court of Appeal in the state.
He explained that the National Judicial Council (NJC) had given three slots for the appointment of judges into the customary court in 2018, but that nothing was done to re-open the court.
Management of the judiciary in the state is claiming that the government was taken to court and therefore no further action should be taken, he disclosed.
The decision to embark on the strike action, he said, was reached at a congress because of the insensitivity and refusal of the CJ, Justice Suleiman Dikko, to address their demands.
“We reached a consensus that if the CJ did not meet our demands, we will resume indefinite strike.
“We have been patient enough to avoid this last resort, but we have no choice but to press home our demands,” he said.
