Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has again called for amicable resolution of the ongoing strike action by the Osun State Chapter of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN.
This is as he also expressed unhappiness about the hold up in the justice administration in the state which is as a result of the industrial action.
Adeleke, speaking while playing host to a delegation of JUSUN national leaders, led by its President, Marwan Mustapha Adamu, listed his interventions to resolve the strike to include the payment of withheld salaries of some judicial workers and negotiations with the union on their wardrobe allowances.
He described the dispute as a judicial matter, adding that the subject matter of the industrial action had nothing to do with the executive arm of government.
He also stressed that his intervention was to avoid further delay in the state’s justice administration system.
“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 judiciary as unfortunate.
According to Adamu, “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.”
