NJC decision: Strike will continue — Osun JUSUN


The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, Osun State chapter, has declared that its industrial action will continue.

According to the Chairman of JUSUN in the state, Oluwagbemiga Eludire, the strike would continue since its demands have not been met.

Eludire maintained that the issue between the state government and the Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Adepele Ojo, had nothing to do with JUSUN’s demands.

He also emphasised that the strike by JUSUN was to press home demands for the welfare of its members.

“The issue of NJC doesn’t concern JUSUN. The issue is between the Chief Judge and the executive arm and that is none of our business. The Chief Judge is our mother, and the governor, Ademola Adeleke, is our father.

“If there is anything between them, we don’t dare dabble into such. Our own concern is the welfare of our members.

“The question is have they attended to our concerns? From day one, our decision is that until our demands are met, the strike continues and that is the status quo and it remains the situation for now,” he stated.

JUSUN in Osun declared indefinite strike since Wednesday, November 22, 2023, after the police dispersed them on the premises of the Osun State High Court in Osogbo with tear gas.

The action was to stop JUSUN members from physically harassing the Chief Judge, Justice Adepele Ojo, whom they have been protesting against.

The judiciary workers had accused the Chief Judge of abuse of office and denying them their rights.

Also, the Osun state House of Assembly launched an investigation against the Chief Judge and resolved to have her suspended by Governor Ademola Adeleke.

But the National Judicial Council, NJC, last week rejected Adeleke’s request to suspend the Chief Judge.
