JUSUN Strike Hampers Polls Tribunal Hearing In Nasarawa
JUSUN Strike Hampers Polls Tribunal Hearing In Nasarawa – The industrial action by the Nasarawa State chapter of Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) disrupted the Local Government Petition Tribunal hearing yesterday.
The tribunal, which was to continue its sitting in Lafia, could not convene following the union’s withdrawal of its members.
Chairman of Nasarawa JUSUN, Jumo Musa, told newsmen through the Public Relations Officer (PRO), Solomon Iyigulu, that union members would not participate in the proceedings of the tribunal.
“Since the chairman and members of the tribunal are not our members, they can go ahead and set, but none of our members would be part of the sitting.
“The management of the judiciary in the state can hire people from anywhere to serve as secretary, clerk and other support staff to continue their sitting,” he said.
He called on the striking members to be resolute until the leadership of the union directs otherwise.
Chairman of the tribunal, Habila Abughadaka, said that the sitting could not continue without support staff who are members of JUSUN.
Speaking through the secretary, Isuwa Ayiwulu, he explained that the tribunal’s secretary, clerk and other support staff were members of JUSUN.
