Wike anger on APC for intimidating the judiciary

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has berated the APC
Federal Government for intimidating the Judiciary through what he
described as unfounded allegations and trumped up charges.
Speaking at the Government House Port Harcourt on Saturday
during a courtesy visit by Class 1984 of the Nigerian Law School,
Governor Wike said the illegal actions of the APC Federal
Government has made it impossible for the dispensation of justice
in the country.
He said: “Where the country is heading to, there is little hope. The
judiciary has been so intimidated. It is unfortunate that the Nigeria
Bar Association buckled when it mattered most.
“Today, it is most difficult for any judge to be courageous to write
fearless judgments. When they do, the security agencies will claim
they saw money in the account of the judge”.
He said lawyers and other Nigerians should work towards the
sustenance of the nation’s democracy.
“We must do everything to ensure that we have a country. If there
is no democracy, we won’t have a way forward.
“Time has come when we must rise up and speak up against the
failures of this government”, he said.
The First Vice President of the Nigerian Law School Class 1984,
Bukhari Bello (SAN) commended the Rivers State Governor for his
investments in the development of Justice sector infrastructure.
He urged other states to emulate Rivers State Government in the
construction of befitting quarters for judges.
Bello also praised Governor Wike for quality projects across the
state, especially the Port Harcourt Pleasure Park.
Highpoint of the visit was the inspection of the Judges Quarters.
