The Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, in Anambra State has lent its support to the strike of the Judiciary Workers Union of Nigeria, accusing the state government of reneging on agreements reached with the workers.

Judicial workers have been on strike since May, two months after they reached an agreement with the government for their return to work.

The workers have now said they may have to be more radical should the government continue to ignore their demands, saying it is wrong for the authorities to fail to honour an agreement reached with workers.

“We demand that immediate consideration be given to the demands of the judiciary workers in Anambra State to fend off the hardship being imposed on the state and its people by the mindless closure of courts, just as we condemn the penchant of the present state government to slight lawyers and the legal industry in the state,” the association said.

“This strike is one strike too many, people are suffering, police stations are filled up with detainees waiting to go to courts, while the prisons are filled up with awaiting trial inmates,” it added.
