Osun Judiciary workers picket Chief Judge’s office

The office of the State Chief Justice in Osun State has been picketed by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN.

The action was taken by the Osun JUSUN in solidarity with members who they claimed have faced various forms of persecution from the embattled Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Adepele Ojo.

The Chairman of Osun JUSUN, Oluwagbemiga Olakunle Eludire, emphasized that their protests were distinct from the actions of the state government.

Eludire said their action was because, “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.”
