Anambra judiciary workers’ strike to end soon – Obiano


Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra said that judiciary workers in the state would soon call off their ongoing strike, following the state government’s efforts to resolve the crisis.
Obiano gave the assurance on Sunday in Awka, while declaring open the maiden Annual Bar Week/Dinner and awards night, organised by the Anaocha branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the state chapter of Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) embarked on a strike on Sept. 7 to press for the implementation of Consolidated Judiciary Salary Structure (CONJUSS).
Obiano, who was represented by his Senior Special Adviser on Legal Matters, Mrs Vera Okonkwo, urged the lawyers to work hard to ensure that the rights of common man were not trampled upon.
In his remarks, the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Peter Umeadi, enjoined judges to read widely, carry out researches and adopt the use of Information Technology so as to make their judgments sound and interesting.
The chief judge, who chaired the occasion, stressed that a judge should never be in doubt as to the facts of a case and the justice of it.
He also advised lawyers to embrace the use of appropriate legal theories and jurisprudence in their work which, he said, was the norm of good legal practice.
