National Judicial Council (NJC) has recommended the dismissal of two judges and they are R. N. Ofili-Ajumogobia of the Federal High Court and James T. Agbadu-Fishim of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria.

According to a statement issued by the NJC Director of Information, Soji Oye on Thursday, the council made the recommendation during its 87th meeting on October 3, 2018 said that the NJC directed their immediate suspension pending when President Muhammadu Buhari would act on its recommendation.
Rising from its 87th meeting held on Wednesday, the NJC also directed Justice Joshua E. Ikede of the Delta State High Court to refund what he earned as salary and other entitlements since October 2016.
The NJC said it found that Justice Ikede altered his age and rejected the retirement letter sent to it on October 1 this year by the judge. In another development, Joint Action Committee (JAC), Imo state University Wednesday, October 3, 2018, joined the rest of the work force in the country to embark on strike over non-payment of entitlements by the government. According to the story, members of the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of SSANU, NASU and NAAT, embarked on the strike, due to the inability of the management, Governing Council and Government to attend to their demands after due notices as required by the law.
They held a peaceful protest in front of Imo State University to drive home their point. The protest was led by the Chairman of the Non Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU), John Anoruo Eugenia, who while addressing the crowd highlighted the issues of contention.
Some of these issues include the non – liquidation of arrears of 2009 FGN Unions agreement, non – remittance of staff pension to RSA's for 27 months amounting to N648,000,000, non – payment of promotion arrears since 2004 till date amounting to N200,000,000, non – implementation of blueprint for adequate funding of the university and so on.
Mrs. Eugenia said to the press men “no pay no work”. One of the members of the JAC from the transport unit by name Comrade Godson, also expressed his bitterness towards the issue saying that their struggle has been on since last year and even when their complains managed to get to the government, still no action would be taken as the government keeps on procrastinating.
