The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has commended the Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, for his intervention during its industrial action to demand independence of judiciary in the country.
JUSUN Deputy President, Mr Emmanuel Abisoye, in a letter appreciation to the minister on Monday in Abuja said: “The union writes to appreciate your support during the period of her industrial action to press home her demands for a free, strong and independent judiciary in Nigeria.
“The union believes that if judiciary became free, the justice system would be better administered for the betterment of Nigerians.
“While thanking you for your continuous support during and after the turbulent time of our great union, we assure you of our support always.”
The Union had on June 9, suspended its two-month nationwide strike over the failure oF government to implement the law recognising financial autonomy for the judiciary.
President Muhammadu Buhari had, on May 22, 2020, signed into law an Executive Order granting financial autonomy to the legislature and judiciary across the 36 states of the federation.
