Abuja - The National President of the
Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Augustine Alegeh, has commended the Rivers
State for initiating massive developmental projects.
Alegeh gave the commendation when he led other members of
the National Executive Council for a courtesy visit on Governor Nyesom Wike at
Government House in Port Harcourt.
He also congratulated the governor for his electoral
victory during the last general elections.
"This is the first time we are meeting you since the
election. We congratulate you on your victory and the development projects you
have attained within a short period," Alegeh said.

Alegeh said the governor would be afforded the rare
privilege of addressing the National Executive Committee of the association as
a member and a host governor of the quarterly meeting of the NBA.
In his remarks, Wike assured the lawyers that he would
continue to be a leading light through
the delivery of democracy dividends.
He assured Nigerian lawyers his administration would
always promote development, independence of the judiciary and the promotion of
the rule of law.
The governor stated that his administration had completed
abandoned projects and embarked on new critical people oriented projects for
the benefit of the state.
He said most of the reports on insecurity were
"politically motivated" as Rivers State was largely peaceful.
The governor praised the NBA for promoting the
rule of law.
