He further stated that his government will continue to work with the judiciary towards quick dispensation of justice.
The Nasarawa State Governor added that the state government has approved an increase in subvention of the judiciary to allow implementation of the harmonisation law as well as enhance allowances of magistrates and judges of Area Courts.
He called on members of the judicial staff union on strike to return to work in the interest of the people.
