Nigeria’s judicial workers on Friday suspended their three weeks strike after they reached a truce with the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Emeka Wogu.
The suspension was preceded by a meeting between the judicial workers, some stakeholders in the judicial sector and Mr. Wogu.
At the meeting, a memorandum of understanding was signed which led to the members of JUSUN agreeing to suspend the strike.
The workers and courts across the country will now resume on Monday.
The workers had on July 11 embarked on the strike following the failure of various state governments to comply with a January 13 order of the Federal High Court, Abuja, directing all allocations meant for state judiciary to be paid directly to heads of state courts.
The agreement signed by both parties indicated that JUSUN’s demand would be met in 45 days.
Besides Mr. Wogu and the judicial workers, other attendees of the meeting include representatives of the fora of state commissioners of finance and state accountants-general, the Accountant-General of the Federation and the National Judicial Council.
