Anambra state branch of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), has given the state government one week ultimatum to address it issues or face industrial action. Following the meeting by the union held yesterday in Awka, The Nation gathered that tension has gripped the administration of Chief Willie Obianoin the state.
Though the chairman of JUSUN in Anambra state, Comrade Mark Ifezue did not confirm this, The Nation scooped that the ultimatum would begin from today (Wednesday).
However, JUSUN chairman confirmed to The Nation that the union had prepared a letter for the state government, which according to him had been equally distributed to their members.
Before now, Obiano had announced to the public that allowance of the judiciary had been cleared 100%, adding that his administration was no longer owing judiciary workers.
But he admitted that the only thing being owed judiciary workers in the state was their arrears, which he said would be cleared before the end of December.
But the JUSUN said in a recent interview with The Nation, “The only capital vote release was made in the first quarter of 2015, which was made to get (JUSUN) suspend its strike. Aside that, no penny has been released to the judiciary High Court”
He said a letter had been done to the state government before now, reminding it of the development and the issue of (CONJUSS).
Meanwhile, the decisions of the meeting by JUSUN yesterday in Awka were sketchy.
