The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the strike, the longest industrial action in the Nigerian judiciary, was suspended on June 9 following a meeting between officials of the union and the National Judicial Council, led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Muhammad.

Speaking in one of the rallies held in Johannesburg, South Africa, the Secretary General of the apex Yoruba Diaspora Group, Dr. Sina Okanlomo, in his speech, said the Yoruba Diaspora group had since October 1,2020 made overreaching quest for an exit from Nigeria because of the glaring administrative inbalance of President Muhammadu Buhari in the last six years.

In a press statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, the group, with headquarters in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, stated that, “rather than vilify Akpabio for making the trip through the creeks, he should be commended and encouraged to do more for the peace of the region.”

In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President noted that Omatseye has distinguished himself in his career and gained recognition nationally and internationally for diligence, excellence and professionalism.

In a statement on Monday by its Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, the organization said it was “most shameful, most reprehensible and most preposterous” for a sitting governor to have joined protesters on the streets of Ibadan (the Oyo State capital) chanting: “Buhari Must Go.”

The president’s congratulatory message is contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Sunday.

If anyone was undecided whether Buhari was at the roots of Nigeria’s worsening ethnic crises in the last six years or so, that Arise TV interview removed all doubts. It revealed a president whose mind is a fertile breeding ground for viral ethnic divisiveness, an infection that is without any possible hope of redemption.
