Unionist Writes CJN Over Alleged Disobedience Of Court Order By Union Leader, Others


          •Chief Justice of Nigeria
          (CJN), Tanko Muhammad



The Chief Justice of the Federation,
Judiciary Complex,
There arms zone,
FCT,
Abuja.
 
Your Lordship, 

 DISOBEDIENCE TO COURT ORDERS BY  THE SECRETARY GENERAL OF ASCSN, MR ALADE BASHIR LAWAL, AND HIS HOSTING OF  THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL (NEC) MEETING  OF THE ASSOCIATION OF SENIOR CIVIL SERVANTS OF NIGERIA (ASCSN) IN LAGOS ON 16TH AND 17H AUGUST 2021; IN DEFIANCE TO A JUDICIAL RESTRAINT.

I bring you greetings and the very best of my wishes.

The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) is a workers' union affiliated to the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC). The Association unionize senior civil servants in both the federal and state civil service in Nigeria.
I write as a disturbed citizen and a member of the workers' union quoted above. For sometime now, the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria has been in crisis  basically due to the activities of the union's Secretary General, Mr Alade Bashir Lawal, to subvert the  union's constitution as we have seen in his refusal to retire when he clocked sixty years inline with the conditions of service of the civil service, and now that he is sixty five years, he is seeking the extension of his service through contract employment . Secondly Sir, the union's President was suspended contrary to the union's constitution and an illegal impositions of an acting President alien to the union's constitution. Hence, a court injunction was sort ,  establishing the return to status quo, and was duely served to the union but the union had deliberately refused to obey this court orders and hosted a NEC meeting in disregard to the humble dispositions of the judiciary.

 As part of the crisis in the union is also the incessant sacking of workers in the union's secretariat, to the extent that close to twenty staff were sacked in the month of June alone, two months to when the Secretary General was to retire at sixty five years.

Sir, I had earlier made attempts to inform the Lagos State Commissioner of Police about the breach of court orders and despite the interventions of the Commissioner of Police, the Secretary General of the union,Mr Alade Bashir Lawal still went ahead to hosting a meeting despite an established court order restraining him from the convocation of such a meeting.

Sir, I am writing you as a disturbed citizen and a member of ASCSN, that is worried about the disregard of the judiciary and the impunity expressed by Mr Lawal to host a  meeting in disregard to an existing court order.
I am more disturbed that same Lawal is so larger than live, such that he can decide to work beyond sixty years in defiance to industrial relations practice of the same conditions of service of union staff to that of the members of the union they seek to protect.

My prayers Sir, that your Lordship intervenes and seek to know the reasons for this anomaly to disobedience of court orders by Mr Alade Bashir Lawal.
That you wade into the disdain and disregard for the judiciary,  rights abuse of the employment rights of the sacked staff of  ASCSN and the constitutional breaches of Mr Lawal refusing to retire at the right age of sixty.

I look forward to your quick response and interventions.

My esteemed regards Sir.
