The announcement was made in copies of notice pasted in and around the Federal High Court Headquarters building in Abuja by the court staff, under the aegis of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) on Friday, September 25, 2020.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), JUSUN stated that all its members would abandon their duties in line with the industrial action planned by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) to begin a strike on Monday.
The notice, which was not signed, reads: “Please be informed that the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), Federal High Court chapter shall, in collaboration with the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), commences a two-week indefinite strike action from Monday the 28th day of September 2020
“All offices shall remain closed within this period. You are required to comply.”
