Judiciary Workers Shut Down Supreme Court As Indefinite Strike Begins by Nemere2020: 10:31am On Apr 06
Judiciary workers under the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) have commenced an indefinite nationwide strike, thereby shutting down the Supreme Court complex in Abuja, in line with their industrial action.

The strike began on Tuesday, based on their demands which include a financial autonomy for the judicial arm of government.

The development came as a defiance to the appeal by the Nigerian Bar Association to shelve the strike, saying it was ill-timed, considering the COVID-19 constraints the Nigerian courts had been battling within the last year.

Other Supreme Court workers who are returning from the Easter break were not able to access the complex on Tuesday as the two key judiciary institutions – the National Judicial Council (NJC) and the Federal Judicial Service Commission (FJSC) – which share the same premises with the Supreme Court were also affected.

Staff buses were also seen making a detour upon arriving at the barricaded gate of the Supreme Court.

The court located in the Three Arms Zone in Abuja, a neighbourhood it shares with the Presidential Villa and the National Assembly Complex.

Workers of both the NJC and the FJSC are part of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), the umbrella body of all judiciary workers at all levels in the nation, and are also bound by the strike declared by the union.

The action taken by the union at the Supreme Court Tuesday morning is expected to be replicated across all Nigerian courts.

JUSUN on April 1 had issued a circular to the effect of its strike, saying it was necessitated by the failure of the federal and state governments to implement a judgment of the Federal High Court, which granted financial autonomy to the judicial arm of government.

The union stated that it had at its last National Executive meeting on March 13, 2021 in Abuja, issued a 21-day ultimatum to the government to implement the financial autonomy of the judiciary with a threat that “failure of which JUSUN will have no other option but to resume the suspended national strike action.”

“Therefore, as a result of the public holiday on April 5, 2021, the strike action has been postponed to Tuesday, April 6, 2021,” the circular partly read.

This strike is very needful cos the judiciary has been trampled by the executive. Their autonomy is non negotiable. How can the executive be paying salary to judiciary workers meanwhile,both judiciary and executive are two different independent tiers of government? This same thing should go to the local government. State governments have for many years ruffled the local government which of course is a separate organ of government. The state governor selects care taker committee and embezzle state funds on their normal frivolities. The local governments in Nigeria should embark on a serious industrial action and should refuse to back down until they are given full autonomy.

Almost every public institution is on strike, including the president.

We are now left at the mercy of "president" Garba Shehu and vice president Malami. While Ambassador Osinbajo is running errands as usual.

I wonder why they seem not to want to ever promote Osinbajo from his role as an "errand boy".
Heard he was in Ebonyi state some few days back, while there, he stopped by the Afikpo market to check the status of his 10k loan. Damn, guy is a workaholic!

Ezekiel 12

The word of the Lord came to me: 13 “Son of man, if a country sinsagainst me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its people and their animals,14 even if these three men—Noah, Daniel and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.

The government should quickly look into this!
Too many strikes at a time in the country. It is sad and disappointing.

Polytechnics are on strike.
Doctors are on strike.
Judiciary is on strike.

Everything is messed up for real and it's terribly sad.
