The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the strike was in compliance with directives issued by the national body of JUSUN over non-implementation of financial autonomy for the judiciary by state governments.
Mr Abdulnasir Muhammad, the JUSUN Zonal Vice Chairman North West and state Chairman of the union, said the lockout was in compliance with the directives by the union’s national secretariat.
“Our action is following the failure of state governments to implement the provision as enclosed in Section 81(3) 121 (3) and 162 (9) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended.
Muhammad further restated that the union demanded for full implementation of financial autonomy for the judiciary in accordance with the presidential directive.
He urged members to stay at home, pending further directives from its national secretariat. (NAN)
