Judges Threaten Strike Over Unpaid Dressing Allowances

The Customary court judges in Plateau State on Wednesday intensified threats to go on strike over the non -payment of nine years outstanding dressing allowances.

Already, the judges , under the aegis of Sharia, Area and Customary Court Judges Association of Nigeria , Plateau State chapter, has issued Governor Simon Lalong a two- week ultimatum within which he should pay the allowances.

The Chairman of SACCJAN, Ayuba Danzel, and secretary, Frank Lojok, in the strike notice dated May 23 , 2017, lamented the discrimination in the payment of dressing allowances which their counterparts in the Ministry of Justice had been enjoying.

The letter read , “We, the entire judges of the Lower Court Bench , do unanimously give 14 - day ultimatum for the payment of our outstanding dressing allowances which have not been paid for about nine years .

“In the event where our demands are not met within the said 14 days, we shall be left with no other option than to down tools and commence on a strike till our demands are complied with . This is with effect from May 23 , 2017 . ”

Danzel said although SACCJAN had consulted constituted authorities on the matter , no concrete step had been taken towards resolving the abnormalities.
According to him, the organisation is left with no alternative but to issue a 14 - day ultimatum to notify the governor of their impending action .

reported that Plateau local government chairmen and councillors had been complaining about the lack of funds and the non -payment of their four - month salaries and allowances.
The 17 LG secretariats of the state were recently deserted since there were no official activities happening
