The National Industrial Court, in Abuja has ordered the Federal Government to put machinery in place for the immediate review of the salaries and allowances of the judicial officers in Nigeria.

Justice Osatohanmwen Obaseki-Osaghae who issued the order held that the refusal of the government to review the judicial officers’ salaries and allowances for fourteen years was unconstitutional and should be compelled to do the needful.

Justice Obaseki-Osaghae gave the order while delivering judgment in a suit filed against the Federal Government by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Sebastine Hon.

He ordered the Federal Government to commence a monthly payment of ten million Naira to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, nine million naira to other Justices of the Supreme Court, and nine million naira to the President of the Court of Appeal.
