JUSUN suspends 64-day-old strike

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has suspended its nationwide strike which paralyzed court activities across Nigeria for over two months.

The Union made the decision to suspend the strike at its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held in Abuja on Wednesday.

In a communique released after the meeting, JUSUN cited the intervention of the National Judicial Council and other stakeholders in reaching the decision to suspend the strike.

The statement signed by the union’s Deputy President, Emmanuel Abioye, and General Secretary, Isiah Adetola, read in part; “NEC-in-session discussed extensively and after putting so many issues into consideration i.e. the intervention of the NJC and other stakeholders, the NEC has resolved that the strike is hereby suspended.”

Recall that members of the union had embarked on the strike on April 6 to demand for the financial autonomy of the judiciary.
