On Thursday, the upper legislative house approved a second reading of a bill intended to examine the pay, benefits, and other ancillary benefits of Nigerian judiciary employees on an upward basis.
The executive bill, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Michael Bamidele, was able to pass second reading after he outlined its general principles and claimed that, should it be passed, it would increase the trust that judges have in one another and reduce corruption. Meanwhile, Senate Deputy President Jibrin Barau commended President Bola Tinubu for bringing forth a bill that addresses judges’ welfare.
Senate President, Godswill Akpabio passes the bill and referred to the Committee on Judiciary and Legal Matters to turn its report to the Committee of the whole in four weeks.
Also Barau sympathised with judicial officers who despite enormous challenges cannot complain or protest the inadequacy of wages because of the conservative nature of their job, explaining that the bill will take care of their wages in a manner that would boost their confidence on the job.
