Sanwo-Olu said this during a dialogue with representatives of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) on Tuesday concerning the ongoing strike action by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN).

Members of JUSUN had embarked on the strike on April 8 in protest against the non-implementation of financial autonomy for the judiciary sector.

The strike action has affected judiciary activities across the country, and the NBA has also expressed support for JUSUN.

Sanwo-Olu, who said his government is concerned about the welfare of judicial workers, promised to work with other governors to bring an end to the strike.

“Our administration fully supports financial autonomy and it is important to state that Lagos state has implemented and is in compliance with this,” Sanwo-Olu said.

“Lagos has always been at the forefront in Nigeria on matters of welfare and remuneration of judicial officers, reforms and working conditions.
