Governor Ademola Adeleke has again called for the amicable resolution of the ongoing strike action by the Osun State chapter of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria.
Governor Adeleke expressed unhappiness over the hold up in justice administration due to the industrial action.
Speaking while hosting a delegation of the national leadership of the judicial union, led by its President, Comrade Marwan Mustapha Adamu, he narrated his interventions to resolve the strike to include the payments of the withheld salaries of some judicial workers and negotiations with the union on their wardrobe allowances.
Describing the dispute as purely a judicial matter, he said the subject matter of the industrial action has nothing to do with the executive arm of government, stressing that his intervention was to avoid further delay in the state’s justice administration system.
Adeleke said: “I thank you for visiting Osun State.
“We value your interventions.
“I have tried to address some of the issues but most of them are not within my purview.
“Your presence in Osun will speed up the resolution efforts.
“As the national body, help us interface with all the parties to find amicable resolutions.
“You have my full support for this assignment.”
Responding, the JUSUN national president described the industrial action and the protracted paralysis of the Osun State judiciary as “unfortunate,” citing his previous sickness as responsible for his late intervention.
Adamu said: “We are in Osun State to find a lasting solution.
“I will meet all stakeholders and I assure Mr. Governor that industrial peace would soon be restored to the state judiciary.”
