Nasarawa Assembly wades into crisis rocking Judiciary Staff


By Mohammed Baba Busu

Lafia, Oct. 28, 2020 Nasarawa State House of Assembly has directed the state Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), the State High Court and Judicial Service Commission, to resolve all contending issues between them within two weeks.

The House also directed the commission to release JUSUN check-up dues to the union in the interest of peace and progress.

Chairman, House Committee on Public Complaints, Petitions and Security, Mr Danladi Jatau, gave the directive on Wednesday in Lafia when staff of the state Judiciary and the state leadership of NLC, appeared before the committee.

Their appearance followed a petition to the committee by the state NLC leadership, on behalf of the JUSUN members.

The petition contained two prayers, including the request that, the check up dues of the JUSUN members be released to the union.

The second request was to address the issue of half salary paid to 20 JUSUN members.

Jatau, who is also the Minority Leader of the House, directed that the check up dues be released to the union while the 50 per cent cut on the salaries of the 20 workers, be lodged in the State Salary Account.

The state NLC Chairman, Mr Yusuf Sarki- Iya, spoke for JUSUN, while Hajiya Ramatu Idris, represented the Judicial Service Commission and Ahmed Sanda, the Chief Registrar, stood in for the state Chief Judge.
