Gov. Wike Flags Off Construction of Law School Campus in Port Harcourt


Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike said his administration was poised to build, furnish and deliver the best campus of the Nigerian Law School in Port Harcourt.

The governor gave the assurance at the ceremony marking the official flag-off of civil engineering works for the establishment of the law campus at Rumueme Town of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, yesterday.

Governor Wike noted how Rivers people had hailed his idea and eventful decision to request for a campus of the Nigerian Law School to be located in Port Harcourt.

According to Governor Wike, if the Rivers Government had not initiated to flag-off and construction of two hostels and an auditorium at the Yenagoa campus of the Nigerian Law School in Bayelsa State, it would have missed the opportunity to request a Port Harcourt campus.

With the request granted and commencement of construction work at the new Law School site, Governor Wike said Rivers people would be the greatest beneficiaries in terms of employment opportunities the campus will offer and the attendant economic activities within the precinct of the institution.

‘People are saying what a wonderful project; what a wonderful decision that we took. I’m sure every Rivers man and woman, even persons who have a clear heart who is not going to play politics will know that decision of siting Law School campus in Port Harcourt is very key,’ he expressed.

‘Not only will it help to reduce the number of those who ordinarily will not have the opportunity of going to law school at the time they finish their law programme at the university, it will improve the economy of the State. It will also create employment for our people.’
