Nationwide strike action continues and courts across the country will remain closed after a meeting between judiciary workers and representatives of the Federal Government ended with no agreement reached.

The meeting was postponed till next week. The Federal Government has said the appropriate laws for judiciary autonomy have been signed into law and that implementation lies with state governments.

At Thursday’s meeting, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, reiterated that the Federal Government has no problem with the issue of financial autonomy for the judiciary.
