Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has reiterated the need for the nation’s judicial officers to remain courageous in dispensing justice without fear and favour.
This, he said, is the usual exhortation that his administration has always given to all judicial officers in the country.
Governor Wike restated this position when he sworn-in Justice Ihemnacho Wilfred Obuzor as the substantive President of the Rivers State Customary Court of Appeal at the Executive Chamber of Government House in Port Harcourt on Monday.
The governor hinted that with such regular counsel, it was left for judicial officers to do what they consider fitting to do in any circumstance.
“There is nothing more I can say. Everybody knows we have said so much about the judiciary. So, there is nothing more to say. Whatever anybody wants to do, you’re free to do.”
Governor Wike also congratulated the new President of Rivers State Customary Court of Appeal for being sworn-in.
The oath of office was administered by the Acting Chief Registrar of the Rivers State Judiciary, David Ihua-Maduenyi on Justice Obuzor who pledged to served with utmost diligence.
Recall that the State Chief Executive Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says the Security Architecture in Rivers State is impeccable and in place.
Governor Wike made this assertion while performing the Ground Breaking Ceremony of Garden City Ultra-Modern Building Material Market, at Mbodo Aluu on Friday 1st April 2022.
Speaking through his Deputy, Dr.(Mrs) Ipalibo Harry Banigo, Governor Wike said that the project would put smiles on the faces of our people not only in Aluu and Ikwerre Local Government Area, but the entire Rivers State and Nigeria in general.
The Governor congratulated the Ikwerre Council Chairman for collaborating with the organizers to attract more investments into Rivers State, stressing that the state is the most secure state in Nigeria.
“I am telling all the investors now to come and do your businesses here you can never regret it. Rivers State is the most secured state in Nigeria today.
