The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Muhammad, on Monday, had a meeting with some officials of the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria on ways to end the impact of the strike in the justice sector.
But the strike commenced on a sad note following the involvement of JUSUN President, Marwan Adamu, in an auto crash.
He was said to have been absent from the meeting on account of his involvement in the auto crash, which occurred while he was travelling from Kano to attend the meeting in Abuja.
The CJN said he would not talk to the 36 governors individually about strengthening Executive Order 10 and the various court judgements, affirming financial autonomy of the judiciary because they would demand more favours from him.
The delegation of JUSUN to the meeting was led by its National Treasurer, Jimoh Musa.
The meeting was held in the office of the CJN within the Supreme Court complex, where Justice Muhammad appealed to the JUSUN members to call off the strike.

A statement from the spokesperson of the CJN, Ahurkah Isah, said he assured them that efforts would be strengthened to ensure that state governments obey Executive Order 10 and the various court judgements, affirming financial autonomy of the Judiciary.
