By Wisdom Deji-Folutile

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria in Lagos has announced the partial resumption of court activities.

According to NAN, the Lagos Chapter of JUSUN has directed members to report to duty three days a week; Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Recall that judiciary staff nationwide on April 6 embarked on an indefinite strike demanding that state governments grant financial freedom to the judiciary.


Chairman of the Lagos chapter, Mr Kehinde Shobowale, has now said that work can begin partially because the state has now attained 75 per cent financial autonomy.

“Therefore, work and official duties are constrained to Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of every week, while Monday and Tuesday of every week remain our strike days that all staff must stay off duty to observe the national strike.”
