Lagos State Judicial workers have resumed full duty after a 23-day strike to press home demand for financial autonomy for the judiciary.
Their resumption followed a directive by the Administrative Department of the Lagos State Judiciary.
It was gathered that courts are yet to begin sitting despite all departments of the state judiciary being opened.
Recall that JUSUN commenced a nationwide strike on Tuesday, April 6, when it directed all its members across the federation to shut down all courts after the expiration of the 21-day ultimatum earlier given over the failure of the government to implement the financial autonomy of the judiciary.
The union is demanding financial autonomy of the judiciary, especially at the state level where the governors have deliberately denied the judiciary access to their fund in gross disregard to Section 121 subsection 3 of the 1999 Constitution.
“Our struggle, and what we are fighting for, the implementation of financial autonomy of the judiciary is in line with the constitution and other extant laws,” President of JUSUN, Marwan Mustapha had said.
