The Abia State governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has commended the members of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) for suspending the 62-day old strike and returning to their duty posts.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Godwin Adindu, the governor said the judiciary workers showed good understanding with the state government and demonstrated the spirit of patriotism by responding to the incentive of the government towards the workers.
The governor stated that since the state government has commenced compliance with the agreement reached with the Union in June, there was no reason the Union should continue the strike, adding that he was happy they have seen reason to reciprocate the good gesture of the state government.
While enjoining the workers to commence work in earnest, Governor Ikpeazu described the judiciary as a very crucial arm of government, stating that the government cannot function effectively without the support and contributions of the judiciary.
He re-emphasized the commitment of his administration towards the welfare of Abia workers and promised to maintain a cordial relationship between the government and the different groups of workerâ€™s union.
