A Cross River based Legal Practitioner, Barrister James Ibor has argued that there’s nothing to celebrate about the President’s assent to the law that gives the State Legislature and Judiciary financial autonomy, stating that “they both have had the powers and had not been able to exercise it.”
Barrister James who is the Lead Counsel of Basic Rights Counsel, a law firm based in Calabar, made his position known while speaking on “The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo” Sunday on HIT 95.9 FM Calabar.
Furthermore, Mr. Ibor added that “The problem has never been the law but the will to implement it.”
Concluding, Barrister Ibor wondered why judiciary workers, under the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) have refused to enforce the judgment they got which reaffirmed their financial autonomy.
