Government to comply with judgment over judicial workers' strike

27 January 2015, 13:10

Abuja - Anyim Pius Anyim, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), has pledged Government’s commitment to comply with the January 13, 2014 judgment granting financial autonomy to the judiciary.

Anyim made the pledge at a meeting with the National Executive Council of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) in Abuja on Monday

Anyim said monitoring committees would be set up to ensure compliance with the judgment at both federal and state levels.

He said that members of the committees would be drawn from the SGF’s office, states, Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Office of the Chief Registrars of Courts (CRs), NLC and JUSUN.

He said the committees would be headed by chairmen of NBA in states while the Chief Registrars in states would serve as secretaries.

He commended JUSUN for fighting for the future of the judiciary in the country.

Augustine Alegeh (SAN), the President of NBA, commended JUSUN for taking action in the interest of the entire judiciary.

"I want to say that the strike by JUSUN is unusual; JUSUN did not go on strike to seek increase of salaries but to enforce compliance to court judgment.

"The action is commendable because it is not for personal gain but for the benefit of the whole judiciary system to be well funded and we will continue to support them", he said.

Earlier, the President of JUSUN, Marwan Adamu, told newsmen that the NEC decided to suspend the strike in Federal High Courts following FG’s commitment to comply with the judgment.

He said that the chairmen of JUSUN in the states were willing to receive any form of commitment by their states subsequent upon which they would also suspend the strike.
