Judges of the lower courts of Ghana are treating to go on strike if the government fails to implement their 10% salary increment.
According to a Citi News report, the judges are contemplating an indefinite nationwide strike across the country.
It will be recalled that judges and magistrates gave government a 10-day ultimatum to increase their salaries by September 30 or face their wrath.
Just last week Supreme Court judge, Justice William Atuguba said at the annual general meeting of the Association of Magistrates and Judges of Ghana that justice will suffer if judges are not enumerated well.
The judges among others demanded allowance for entertainment and better conditions of service.
A spokesperson for the lower court judges, His Honour Aboagye Tandor, said they would advise themselves if nothing is done about their concerns.
“Certain reforms have been done with regards to our salaries without any views or recourse to us …,” he said in an interview with Citi News.
