Abuja - The Rivers State Government has reiterated its commitment to ensuring residents' access to justice.

Governor Nyesom Wike made the pledge following plans to complete the new Federal High Court complex annex in Port Harcourt Court.

He said to ensure that more residents of the state have access to justice.

Wike stated this after inspecting ongoing work at the new Federal High Court building, which upon completion would have four floors, several courtrooms and offices for judges and staff of the judiciary.

The governor also announced that the old Obio Customary Court would be demolished to create space for the construction of the Rivers State Customary Court of Appeal, which would accommodate more Customary Courts.

He expressed happiness with the pace of the project, directing the contractor to maintain the speed of work.

Wike said the state government would ensure regular funding of the project.

“Our commitment to the creation of access to justice is total. We will complete this new Federal High Court building of four floors with new courtrooms and offices,” Wike said.

The Attorney General of the State, Emmanuel Aguma, Judges of the Federal High Court and the Rivers State Commissioner for Housing, Emma Okah, witnessed the inspection of the Federal High Court building.
