As the issue of non-payment of Imo judges’ allowances for about 16 months and other frustrations on the judicial officers continue to rage, a magistrate in Imo State, Dr. Ahiezechukwu Daniel, has resigned his appointment, saying that arm of government is on ‘life support.’
He accused the state government of frustrating and putting that arm of government into a state of backwardness.
Daniel who spoke at the weekend while addressing newsmen and members of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), said he tendered his resignation last December, after considering the high level of sufferings the state government, under the watch of Rochas Okorocha has subjected the judiciary to, allegedly cutting the salaries and allowances of both judges and magistrates at will.
