There are some judicial staff in Zamfara who are being paid the sum of 7,500 naira as basic salary while state civil servants from other ministries in the state are receiving a basic salary of 15,000 naira.

Chairman of Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria Zamfara State branch Comrade Abdul Nasir Dan Baba while justifying reasons for embarking on indefinite strike action nationwide at a Thunder Blowers TV show DA-WACHE-KAZO on Tuesday.

He said part of their agitation was for the state government to stabilize an equated salary as well as pays union members their earned peculiar allowances.

On the autonomy of the judiciary the Chairman said, the union has been battling to ensure the enforcement of section 121(3) of the constitution 19999 as amended, but governments at all levels have refused to heed to the constitutional demand of the members of the union.

He further said the union secured a court verdict from Justice Ademola Adeniyi which asked the federal government and Attorney Generals of the 36 states and FCT to ensure compliance with the provision of the section 212(3) of theconstitution but they all refused to heed to the court order.

He noted that to the best of his knowledge neither the federal government nor states appeal the judgment of Justice Ademola Adeniyi and for that the union stand by that judgment.

On the non implementation of the executive order (10) by the Attorney General of the Federation, the Chairman said the AGF should be in better position to explain to the Nigerians since the order instructed him to effect deduction from the source for any state that failed to remit the money meant for the state judicial arms.

He noted further that, the former NBA Chairman of the state Bello Galadi has reached out to the union today on the need for them to suspend the strike action but explained that it was too late since it was an order from the national body of the union.

The Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Zamfara state Faruk Ahmad Shatiman Rijiya has challenged those in the APC to prove whether the embattled eighteen seater bus they were making noise over was personally donated to him by Governor Matawalle or for the office of the PDP Publicity of Secretary.

Shatima who declared this during a Press Conference in Gusau on Friday said, contrary to the noise making round the public, he has never, for once, begged Governor Matawalle to dash him a car instead, the Governor personally feels he wanted to donate the car to him because of the role he played during his electioneering campaigns in 2019.

“If they wanted the car to be returned as claimed, let them tell the world how the Governor donated out the car to me through late Ibrahim Mallaha of blessed memory. The Governor gave the car to late Mallaha for onward handing over to me as personal donation, and I am certain if they met the him, he will confirm this to them.

“I am not in politics for vehicle, asked those who were with us in 2019. I used my personal Peugeot (406) to move with the Governor throughout the campaign period. I was not paid even money for fuel and the Governor knew that, and may be in his wisdom that was why he decided to dash me a vehicle I did not beg for”.

On the new security measures taken by the Governor, Shatiman Rijiya said he is sure the measures are targeted at the supporters of the PDP and because election is approaching, noting that they have every reason to entertain fear.

If the measures are initiated to get the lives of the typical Zamfara citizen better and secured, PDP will welcome the idea but noted that, under the current situation, the party and its members are not confident enough with the Governor’s pronouncement.
