The Federal Government has appealed to the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) to suspend its nationwide industrial action, which has paralysed activities in courts across the country.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige made this appeal at a conciliation meeting between the Federal Government and the leadership of JUSUN.
Ngige said, he will make a commitment based on the Executive Order 10 and its application, granting autonomy to the Judiciary which is topmost on their demand because it is a constitutional issue. He promised to do a report on this meeting and forward to the President when returns.
The President of JUSUN, Marwan Mustafa said they were guided by the Constitution of the country in their action , stressing that democracy has to thrive on the Rule of Law.
The meeting agreed to reconvene on Thursday.
