Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said the state government would impose policy of ‘no-work-no-pay’ policy on judiciary workers for the first week of june.
Wike’s threat is coming shortly after the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria called off its nationwide strike which lasted for two months.
Recall that Governor Wike had last week threatened to effect the policy on the Rivers State judiciary workers for refusing to resume work,
JUSUN, however, announced the suspension of the strike on Wednesday after meeting with the Chief Justice of Nigeria.
Speaking, Wike said he had directed the state “Accountant General of the State not to pay judiciary workers for the first week of June in which the ‘no-work-no-pay policy’ was in force.”
“Rivers State government is in full support of financial autonomy of the judiciary and has been implementing same. We have stated before that we are not going to set up any budget monitoring committee in the State because it is unnecessary” the statement read in part.
