By Abubakar Abdullahi

An industrial high court in Abuja has ordered the upward review of judges’ salaries.

Sebastian Hon, a senior advocate of Nigeria, filed the suit before the labour court to request that the pay of Nigerian judges be raised.

The national assembly and the National Judicial Council had tried unsuccessfully to settle the dispute outside of court.

The Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission and the attorney-general of the federation were also joined as defendants.

Adegboyega Awomolo, counsel to the claimant, in his final address submitted that the salaries and allowances of judicial officers remain unchanged since 2008.
