JUSUN Sets April 19 For Nationwide Peaceful Protest

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) says it would hold a nationwide peaceful protest on April 19 to further push home its demand for financial autonomy for the judiciary.

This threat is contained in a circular obtained by the press, dated April 16 and signed by the Deputy Secretary of the Union, Mr. P. Nnamani.

Recall that JUSUN on April 6, commenced a nationwide industrial action, calling for the implementation of financial autonomy for the judiciary.
