I want My People to Have Access to Justice – Governor Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has explained that his administration is investing in Federal Judiciary infrastructure because the Federal Government has abandoned her responsibilities to the Rivers people.

Speaking during a courtesy visit by the National Association of Rivers State Students from the Nigerian Law School at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Thursday, Governor Wike said that his administration was compelled to make necessary investments in courts under the Federal Government because they were left to rot.

Governor Wike said: “After Lagos State, the next state with the highest number of litigations is Rivers State. Yet the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt was dilapidated, the National Industrial Court was non existent and the Court of Appeal has been in a sorry state.

“We have proposed the demolition of the existing old Federal High Court, so that we can build a new complex with more courtrooms “.

The governor added that his administration is constructing the National Industrial Court complex in Port Harcourt, as part of measures to ensure that litigants no longer travel to Yenagoa for their cases.
