The National Industrial Court has set a hearing date of July 15 to decide the Judges welfare increment outcome, the lawsuit demanding an increase in the wages and allowances of the nation’s judicial officers.

After the parties to the case had argued and adopted their final written addresses, Justice Osatohanmeen Obaseki-Osaghae set the date for judgment.

Mr. Sebastine Hon filed the lawsuit.

The National Assembly, the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, as well as the National Judicial Council, were all named as defendants in the lawsuit.

Adegboyega Awomolo, the claimant’s attorney, argued in his closing remarks that judicial officers’ pay and benefits have not altered since 2008.

He claimed that an urgent upward review is required to prevent plaintiffs and attorneys from appearing before judges who are paid extremely little.
