The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) has declared an indefinite nationwide strike to protest the government’s failure to implement financial autonomy for the judiciary.

Isaiah Adetola, secretary-general of JUSUN, announced via a circular dated April 1 that the workers will down their tools starting from Tuesday.

The industrial action comes days after the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) commenced a nationwide strike to protest poor remuneration and conditions of service.

Adetola said the strike follows a 21-day ultimatum issued to the federal government to implement financial autonomy for the judiciary.

“As a result of the public holiday on April 5, 2021, the strike action has been postponed to Tuesday, April 6, 2021,” he said.

“You are directed to shut down courts/departments in your states until further notice from the National Secretariat of JUSUN in Abuja.”

Some Nigerians and groups have been advocating for financial autonomy for the judiciary — and state houses of assembly — to make them more independent of the executive.
