Judicial activities will this morning (Thursday) begin across the courts in Oyo State following the suspension of three-month strike embarked upon by members of the state chapter of Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

This, it was gathered followed the state government’s acceding to the demands of JUSUN members which are essentially on the autonomy of the judiciary.

The National Vice-President, Adesanya Adesina addressed a press conference on Wednesday in Ibadan, where the suspension was announced, saying, “governor Ajimobi has agreed to be paying N150 million monthly to JUSUN account and that government had already paid N150 million to the account in January which covered overhead, capital expenditure, workers salaries and allowances.

“We see this as a concrete commitment and the need for the strike to be suspended”, according to the national officer, the position reinforced by the state JUSUN Chairman, Ademola Ayoade who said the union members would fully resume for work this morning (Thursday).

It would be recalled that JUSUN members began an indefinite strike three months ago along with their colleagues nationwide.

Following ability of the Federal Government to reach a truce with JUSUN members working in Federal courts, those among JUSUN members working under federal government suspended own strike while those working under various states government were directed not to suspend their strike until their demands are met too by their various government.
