Addressing reporters yesterday at the Sir Louis Mbanefo Bar Centre, Onitsha, NBA said the decision was reached in response to the strike embarked upon by JUSUN. Mr. Uba Anene, who spoke for other branch chairmen and secretaries, condemned what they called “an attempt by the Anambra State government to run down the judiciary and the judicial process by failing to fully implement an agreement with the JUSUN”. Condemning what it called the “apparent attempt by the state government to renege in an agreement entered into with JUSUN in 2011, it lashed JUSUN for not applying a human face to its job by embarking on strike on issues that could be amicably resolved while the courts were sitting”. “We demand that immediate consideration be given to the demands of the judiciary workers to fend off the hardship being imposed on the state and its people by the mindless closure of courts, just as we condemn the penchant of the present state government to slight lawyers and the legal industry. “We declare finally, that the Bar in Anambra State, as concerned stakeholders, had on three occasions formally applied for appointments with the governor to draw his attention to these anomalies privately but was routinely ignored, hence the resort to this medium. “It does seem that, unlike other states, the current administration in Anambra state has no interest in the usual consultation with key stakeholders. “We no longer intend to fold our hands while the light of the nation daily degenerates. This strike is one too many, people are suffering, police stations are filled with detainees waiting to go to courts. “The prisons are filled with awaiting trial inmates, the strike should be called off immediately and if that is not done, we will take further steps to make government and JUSUN listen to the voice of reason” NBA said yesterday.]]>
