JUSUN treasurer, Jimoh Musa confirmed this, he said the strike suspension was agreed during a meeting between the Union and the National Judicial Council, NJC, on Tuesday June 8, 2021.

However, he further said that the suspension has to be approved by National Executive Council of JUSUN, being the highest decision-making body of the Union.

He also said that after two or three months of suspension if the Governors fail to do the needful the union will begin a new strike.

“They (governors) have not started paying (the funds directly to the NJC). We are waiting for the state governors to commence payment so that we can inform our workers.
