During the inauguration of the newly-constructed Justice Iche Ndu Magistrates Court Complex in Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike announced that he had named a block in the complex after his wife, Justice Eberechi Nyesom Wike, alongside other distinguished justices.
In his remarks at the ceremony, the governor explained that he wanted to ensure that all deserving justices were honored with a block named after them. He noted that the first block was named after Justice Chibuzor Amadi, while the second block was named after the late Justice Elizabeth Membre.
The third block was named after the President of the Customary Court of Appeal, who had also served as a Magistrate.
Governor Wike also disclosed that he named the last block after his wife, Justice Suzzette Eberechi Nyesom Wike.
He stated that he did not want to leave the office without having a block named after his wife and emphasized that the most important thing was that his name was also included in the block.
The governor further explained that he named the complex after a former Chief Judge of the state, Justice Iche Ndu, because of his significant contributions to the growth of the judiciary during his tenure. He praised Justice Ndu for his outstanding performance and noted that he deserved to be recognized for his hard work.
The Justice Iche Ndu Magistrates Court Complex was inaugurated by the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, who had been in the state since Wednesday. Tinubu also inaugurated the Rumuokwuta/Rumuola Flyover on Wednesday and hosted to a state banquet at the Government House.
