This is to take effect from next year’s budget proposals.
At the meeting of the two judiciary bodies at the Supreme Court in Abuja chaired by the Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court, Mr. Sunday Olorundahunsi, and the JUSUN President, Marwan Adamu, the bodies said the federal and state judiciaries should take their budgets to either the National Assembly or states Houses of Assembly for appropriation.
They held also that all the federal and state judiciaries should not obey or condone budgetary ceilings likely to be placed by the federal government and some state governors to subvert the judiciary‘s financial autonomy.
The meeting which was attended by the Chief Registrar of the Federal High Court, Mrs. Rosemary Onnome Dugbo-Oghoghorie, Registrars of the various divisions of the Court of Appeal, Federal and states High Courts, Sharia and the Customary Courts of Appeal, resolved that “it shall be tantamount to contempt of court on the side of the executive at both levels to place a ceiling on the amounts the judiciary can budget for.”
