Oluwagbenga Olakunle Eludire, the state chapter chairman of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), declared an indefinite strike on Wednesday.
This decision follows a two-day protest earlier in the week by Osun JUSUN, raising concerns about alleged maladministration by the embattled Osun Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Adepele Ojo.
Members of JUSUN pointed to accusations of unjust persecution of staff and denial of entitlements, including the restoration of training exercises and wardrobe allowances from 2021 to 2023 and the reinstatement of suspended judiciary staff by Justice Adepele Ojo.
Eludire emphasized the need for prompt implementation of the regularization and promotion exercise, along with ensuring that other entitled benefits for JUSUN members are addressed without unnecessary delays.
Due to the strike directive, all judiciary workers in the state have been instructed to refrain from attending courts and offices, withdrawing their services until further notice.
