Cross River judicial workers incur Ayade’s wrath over strike threat

Cross River judicial workers incur Ayade’s wrath over strike threat - Minis­try of Justice, Law Officers Association of Nigeria (, Cross River

By Joseph Kingston, Calabar

Gov Ben Ayade has de­cided to strictly en­force the ‘no work, no pay’ policy on civil servants working in the ministry of justice over a purported plan to embark on strike, begin­ning from today, Juy 2, 2018.

A statement from the office of the chief press secretary/ senior special assistant to the governor on media, Mr Chris­tian Ita, read “it has come to my notice that a certain group of people under the aegis of Law Officers Association of Nigeria (LOAN) are planning on shutting down the on Monday, the 2nd of July 2018.

“They claim that the govern­ment of state has approved but not implement­ed the harmonisation of their salaries with that of Judicial Officers in the Magistrate cad­re. This issue is in the 2018 Budget and presently being handled by the HOS Barr Ek­penyong Henshaw and the Ac­countant General of CRS.

“The SA Labour to the gov­ernor has said this group is not part of NLC and TUC and therefore cannot declare a strike against a governor who has performed credit­ably well! We therefore urge the general public and the service to ignore any body claiming to or purporting to be in support of this group.

“Our digital governor re­mains open to negotiations in this respect. But the attorney general and commissioner for justice CRS will not hesitate to implement the ‘No work, No pay’ policy of the federal government should the need arise. This notice is approved by the AG/CFJ.”
