Wike swears in two Judges

 Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has called on judges to be courageous  in the discharge  of their constitutional  responsibility to the people .
 Speaking while swearing-in Justice Constance Douye Green and Justice Chinwendu Nworgu as justices of the Rivers State Judiciary , Governor Wike  noted that  the present-day  realities  require strength of character  from Judges.
 He said that judges who lack courage to dispense justice in line with  the  Constitution  and the Rule of Law ought to resign  from  the judiciary .
 The governor urged judges to always dispense justice with courage because    in the course of their work , they would  be  threatened and faced  with  flimsy  petitions by desperate politicians .
 ” This is a time when judges require courage in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities.
 “Judges should not withdraw from cases on the ground of flimsy petitions by desperate politicians. Judges should always make sure that justice is done. Do not be intimidated”, the governor said.
 The two judges were appointed by the governor following the recommendation of the National Judicial Council in line with the provisions of the law.
 The swearing-in ceremony at the Government House, Port Harcourt was attended by the Chief of Rivers State, Justice Adama Iyayi-Laminkara, President of Customary Court of Appeal, Justice Christiana Gabriel-Nwankwo, Wife of the Rivers State Governor, Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike, other judges of the Rivers State Judiciary, Senior Advocates of Nigeria and leaders of the bar in Rivers State
