The 1st Vice-President of the Nigerian Bar Association, John Aikpokpo-Martins, has said that there is no update on the ongoing strike of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN, yet.
Aikpokpo-Martins, in an interview with TheNigeriaLawyer, said but as things are now, is governors that are holding everybody to ransom by failing to comply with the agreement they had with JUSUN.
NBA President Sheds Light on JUSUN’s Decision to Suspend Strike
“Is governors that are holding everybody to ransom. They have gone against the agreement.
The agreement was very straightforward. They are supposed to have paid last week upon receiving allocations. But when they received the allocations, they didn’t pay.” he said
According to him, the governors are saying that “we should wait for last week of June when they will get another allocation from the federal purse. But the question is: if they entered into an agreement whose implementation was to start this May, what guarantee do we now have that even in that June, they will also not renege?”
He said NBA is working to make sure that work resumes as soon as possible
He also said he met with the executives of JUSUN today and conveyed displeasure over the opening of Supreme Court and other courts for judgements to be delivered or cases to be conducted.
He noted that the JUSUN executives denied been aware of it not until when they heard it from people and went there (the Supreme Court) to confirm it themselves.
They said they have changed their men stationed at the court.
They assured that it will not repeat itself again.
