As the industrial action by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, enters its fifth week, the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, has resolved to engage relevant stakeholders on financial autonomy for the Judiciary.
Law TV recalls that JUSUN on April 6, embarked on a nationwide strike action calling for a full implementation of financial autonomy for the Judiciary.
As a direct fall out of the strike, the union directed the closure of all entrances to courts premises in the country.
With the strike action now in its fifth week, the NBA leadership has urged all lawyers to be patient, with a promise to continuously engage the relevant stakeholders to ensure full compliance with financial autonomy for the Judiciary.
In a statement signed by NBA national Publicity Secretary, Rapulu Nduka, the association commended its members for standing firm in their quest for true independence of the Judiciary and assured of continuous engagements.
He said that the NBA leadership is not unmindful of the financial strain on legal practitioners, occasioned by the ongoing strike, and pleaded with members to be patient as the ongoing struggle anchors on the Association’s paramount mandate of promoting the rule of law.
