The workers had declared indefinite strike over alleged refusal by Governors to grant autonomy which was signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari last year.

Governor of Rivers State, Mr. Nyesom Wike handed down the threat at a valedictory court session held in honour of the retiring Chief Judge of the State, Adama Iyayi-Lamikanra haven attained the mandatory age of 65.

According to the Governor, “my administration may be forced to wield the big stick if judicial workers in the State fail to resume work by the end of this month.

“There was no basis for the State chapter of JUSUN to join the strike as the issues in contention do not apply to Rivers State where the Judiciary is already enjoying financial autonomy and much improved staff welfare”, he said.

He described the Justice Adama Iyayi-Lamikanra as a courageous judge with a passion for truth, fairness and justice.

Wike also latched out at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) for maligning the State’s Judiciary with all sorts of allegations.

The Governor thereafter gave a certificate of occupancy to a property built for Iyayi-Lamikanra and keys to two vehicles.
