Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has said his administration is in full support of autonomy for Judiciary and Legislative Arms of Government.

The Governor stated this on Monday when the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Makurdi branch led by its Chairman, Barrister Justin Gbagir paid him a courtesy visit at the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi.

He stated that autonomy for the two arms of government is allowed under the constitution and as someone who has respect for the Rule of Law, he would prefer that monies meant for the Judiciary and Legislature be deducted at source.

Governor Ortom noted that a framework to that effect was being worked out, expressing the belief that when the process is completed, Nigerian Governors would also key into it.

The Governor appealed to the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, to call off its strike to alleviate the sufferings of those currently in detention and others who have dealings with the courts.

Makurdi branch Chairman of the NBA, Barrister Justin Gbagir said they had the mandate to demand the implementation of financial autonomy for the Judiciary across Nigeria.

He expressed hope that as an ardent supporter and promoter of the Rule of Law and constitutional governance, Governor Ortom would accept the position of the NBA on the need for judicial autonomy.

Recall that JUSUN, on April 6 embarked on an industrial action, shutting down courts across the nation, demanding judicial independence.
