The State Chief Justice’s office has been picketed by the Osun State chapter of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, or JUSUN.
Reporters gathered to witness the Osun JUSUN’s action expressed solidarity with some of its members who they claimed had been subjected to various forms of persecution by the Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Adepele Ojo, who is currently under fire.
In an interview with media on Monday at the Osun State High Court, which houses the Chief Judge’s office, Oluwagbemiga Olakunle Eludire, the Chairman of Osun JUSUN, stated that their agitations were entirely distinct from the state government’s actions.
Eludire said the reason for their action was
“We demanded from Justice Ojo why our wardrobe allowance from 2021 till date has not been released despite funding by the state government.
“We want to know why the government directive on promotion and advancement made available by the Osun government was not used for the purpose approved for.
“We want to know why notable JUSUN members were unlawfully suspended without proper investigation against public service rules.
“We will not back down until appropriate action is taken on the matter.”
