The workers want the Nigerian government to implement an agreed salary package.

Nigerian Judiciary Workers have called off their strike which paralysed activities in all Federal Courts since Monday. The workers were asked to resume work immediately.

Court workers in Lagos confirmed that they got the directive to resume work from the Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court in Abuja early on Wednesday.

Very few workers were, however, present in court as many were not aware the strike had been called off and may resume on Thursday.

Bello Okandeji, the Deputy Chief Registrar at the Federal High Court, Lagos, told PREMIUM TIMES he was told the strike had been called off but was yet to receive an official directive from the workers’ union in Abuja.

The workers embarked on the strike to protest the non-implementation by the federal government of the agreed salary package for the workers.
