The Kebbi state chapter of Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has embarked on an indefinite strike for failure of the state government to fulfil the memorandum of understanding (MOU) on remuneration between the two parties.

The secretary general of the union, Mr Sam Amadi, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birmin Kebbi on Thursday.

He said the strike action had remained the only option by the union as government refused to implement the agreement reached in February this year.

He said all Courts in this state had been closed pending outcome of further agreement between the two parties.

Amadi said the union had demanded the financial autonomy of the judiciary as provided in section 121 Sub (3) of the constitution adding, “many states have complied with the constitutional provision except Kebbi.”

He said the union also demanded increment of salary for judicial staff considering the fact that those who were not lawyers received paltry sums as salaries.

Amadi,added that though the MOU was signed with the past administration led by,Alhaji Saidu Dakingari, “government remains a continuous process and the present government ought to actualize the agreement.”

He said the union would ensure that all courts remained closed until the resolution of the dispute.

He called on the government to hasten resolution of the strike as justice sector was one of the veritable organ of governance. (NAN)
