Yobe State chief judge, Justice Kashim Gomna, has said the state judiciary enjoys 85% financial autonomy and has no business going on strike.
He said the judicial workers joined the strike in solidarity with their colleagues across the nation.
“If state judiciary were to decide individually, here in Yobe state, there is no reason going on strike,” Mr Kashim said.
The CJ expressed confidence in the governor meeting all the needs of the judiciary.
Responding, the governor expressed appreciation over the cordial working relationship between the executive and the judiciary in the state.
He however called on the judiciary to consider Nigerians who are victims of the industrial action.
The governor cautioned that something must be done to rescue ‘accidental victims’ of the strike.
