Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike has said the state authorities will effect the ‘no-work-no-pay’ policy on judiciary employees for the first week of june.
This statement is coming shortly after the Judiciary staff Union of Nigeria called off its national strike which lasted for two months.
recall that Governor Wike had last week threatened to enforce the policy on the Rivers state judiciary workers for refusing to resume work, after he claimed that his administration had already started the implementation of the financial autonomy for the judiciary arm of government.
The national President of JUSUN, however, announced the suspension of the strike on Wednesday after a meeting with the chief Justice of Nigeria.
while commending the JUSUN members for suspending the commercial action, the Governor said he had directed the country “Accountant general of the state not to pay judiciary people for the first week of June in which the ‘no-work-no-pay policy’ was in Enforce.”
In a statement issued through his media aide, Kelvin Ebiri, Governor Wike said the motion accompanied the refusal of the judiciary people to comply along with his directive for them to call off the action before the beginning of June.
“Rivers state authorities is in complete support of financial autonomy of the judiciary and has been implementing equal. we've said before that we are not going to set up any finances tracking committee within the state because it is pointless” the statement study in part.
