FG Meets With Jusun, Pasan, Presents Proposals On Financial Autonomy

The Federal Government has expressed optimism that the strike of the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria and the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria will end soon.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, stated this after a conciliation meeting between the government negotiating team  and the two unions, during which he presented a proposal on financial autonomy for the judiciary and state assembly to the unions.

Ngige said the government had made offers to the two unions for them to consult with their various National Executive Committees and revert with feedback.

According to the minister, the proposal substantially addressed their demands for judicial and legislative autonomy in the 36 states of the country.

He explained that the proposal was produced by the committee of the government comprising the Solicitor General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Justice, Dayo Apata (SAN), the Secretary of the Presidential Committee for the Implementation of Judicial and Legislative Autonomy, Senator Ita Enang, representative of the National Judicial Council and the Director-General of the Nigerian Governors Forum.
