Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, says the provision of personal homes to judicial officers of Rivers extraction will serve as good motivation to resist enticements of all forms capable of compromising the integrity of their judicial functions.

The Governor stated this at the Government House in Port Harcourt yesterday, after signing into law two bills passed by the State House of Assembly.

The two bills are Rivers State Judicial Institute Law No.  8 of 2021, and the Rivers State Housing Scheme for Judicial Officers Law, No.  10 of 2021.

Governor Wike pointed out that the law will contribute to promoting judicial independence and reduce all forms of corruption among judicial officers.

According to Governor Wike, the initiative is novel and different from that of Lagos State which only catered for their judges servicing within the State.
