On Tuesday, judicial workers in Oyo State followed the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria’s (JUSUN) sit-at-home directive in protest of the July salary payment delay.
Mr. Obafunso Okulaja, the Oyo State JUSUN Public Relations Officer, stated that the decision for the strike was made following the union’s congress on Friday.
Okulaja stated that the workers had not been paid in July, despite the fact that other government agencies in the state had been paid on July 25.
“Because our members do not have enough money to come to work, we directed them to stay at home.”

“JUSUN has yet to receive his July salary in the state, and this has been the case since December 2021.”
“We call on the state government to put us on the priority list as the third arm of the government.
“If the executive and legislative arms are given priority, the judiciary should also be given same.
The sit-at-home will continue until we receive our July salary,” he said. Findings revealed that the Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court and State High Court, the entrance gates to court premises and some offices were locked while people and vehicles were restrained from entering.
