Nigeria’s Chief Justice Judge Tanko Muhammad pleaded with members of the Nigerian Judicial Staff Union (JUSUN) on Tuesday to call for their ongoing strike in the interest of the nation.

The appeal is contained in a statement by Mr. Ahuraka Isah, CJN Special Assistant on Media and Advertising Strategy.

The CJN made this appeal when it met with national and local JUSUN officials in its cabinet to explore solutions and ways to mitigate the impact of the strike.

Muhammad called on JUSUN to call off the strike as the process of forcing the state government to obey Ordinance 10 and various court rulings on the autonomy of the judiciary is underway.

“The involuntary victims of this strike are better imagined. It has spiraling effects, including on our children and on the federal judiciary, which is a lesser culprit.

“Usually I’d say I’ll talk to 36 state governors, which is like asking for their favors, but some of them would ask me to do ten favors in return.

“That is why, as a judge, it is forbidden for me to ask for favors.”

JUSUN National Treasurer Mr. Jimoh Musa who led the delegation on behalf of JUSUN President Marwan Adamu said that of the 19 members of the National Executive Council (NEC), only three were present.

He said their chairman, Musa, had an accident on his way to attend the meeting with the CJN.

Musa, however, agreed to depose the fatherly counsels of the CJN before the meeting of the JUSUN NEC and therefore return to his lordship. (NOPE)
