The governor of Imo State Senator Hope Uzodinma who became governor through the supreme Court should have immense respect for the judiciary and rule of law. After the governor unleashed thugs to arrest the court officials on their lawful duty and label them criminals, the presiding Judge Rt Hon Galadimma was also threatened which led to the closure of the court till date.
When the court is shutdown, democracy and the fate of dismissed workers will hang in the balance. I urge the governor to also reciprocate the gesture granted to him by the judiciary by respecting the sanctity of the institution and follow due process in appealing judgments that was not unfavourable to his administration.
The leadership of Nigeria labour congress in Imo State should not be the eye of the government,they are meant to fight for the welfare of the workers and condemn executive recklessness. I urge the president of nationalindustrial court to please consider the plight of litigants in seeking justice and recind his decision to unceal the national industrial court in owerri. “Justice delayed is Justice denied”.
