Tension rises as NARD, JUSUN and ASUP shut down

The Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), on Tuesday, shut down the judicial system in the country as the union embarked on an endless strike with all courts across the nation locked up.

According to the national management of JUSUN, the strike action is to press home their demand for the financial autonomy of the judiciary.

In less than a week, about 3 sectors embarked on endless strike actions to sign in their objections towards the Nigerian governments.

Coming after the ‘fruitless’ efforts by the Federal Government to stop the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) from embarking on its proposed strike, the association, on Thursday, April 1st commenced an industrial action, shutting down the medical sector indefinitely.

The National Association of Resident Doctors claimed that the Federal Government had rescinded the agreements it entered with the doctors.

The action became alarming on Monday when the resident doctors ordered members at the COVID-19 isolation centres to join the nationwide strike, shutting down the whole health sector.

But as the Nigerians Government was trying to comprehend the actions of NARD and JUSUN, another heartbreaking news from the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics, ASUP, was announced, proceeding on an indefinite strike.

Anderson Ezeibe, the president of the union, made the proclamation shortly after an emergency meeting with the Federal Government officials in Abuja.

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics has shut down the Nigerian Polytechnics on Monday, requesting the implementation of a new salary scheme for polytechnic lecturers.

Presently, the Medical sector is down, the Education sector is down, Nigeria Courts are locked up and the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and other unions want to embark on industrial actions.

Do you think the prison inmates who escaped are going to return because of what the Federal Government said?
