Governors of the 36 states of the federation under the platform of Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) have appealed to striking Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) to call off their strike in the interest of the nation.
The 36 state governors under the aegis of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) have expressed the need for special review of the entire gamut of the security issues, sequel to the unabated cases of killing of soldiers and civilians across the country.
Governors of the 36 State of the federation on the platform of Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) Wednesday night described as worrisome the growing insecurity across the country and vowed to revisit the nature and depth of the crisis.
Governors of the 36 states have demanded comprehensive evaluation of the various security challenges plaguing the nation to allow for an appreciation of the scope, nature and better ways to address them. The Governors, at a meeting in Abuja on Wednesday night, expressed concerns over the seeming intractable nature of the problem of insecurity in the country.
Governors of the 36 states of the federation, on the platform of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), will, tomorrow, meet with the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) over the ongoing strike which had paralysed activities in courts across the country. The union had, on April 6, embarked on a nationwide strike to protest the non-implementation of the financial autonomy of the nation’s judiciary.
State governors have said the Federal Government cannot dictate to them the implementation of the financial autonomy for the state legislature and the judiciary. President Muhammadu Buhari had, in June last year, signed Executive Order 10, 2020 into law, which granted financial autonomy to state legislature and the judiciary.
