The State Chief Justice’s office in Osun State has been picketed by the Osun State chapter of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria, JUSUN.
This action is in support of certain members who claim to have faced persecution from the troubled Chief Judge, Justice Oyebola Adepele Ojo.
The Chairman of Osun JUSUN, Oluwagbemiga Olakunle Eludire, clarified that their grievances are distinct from the state government’s actions.
Eludire said their action was because, “We demanded from Justice Ojo why our wardrobe allowance from 2021 till date has not been released despite funding by the state government.
“We want to know why the government directive on promotion and advancement made available by the Osun government was not used for the purpose approved for.
“We want to know why notable JUSUN members were unlawfully suspended without proper investigation against public service rules.
“We will not back down until appropriate action is taken on the matter.”
