Rivers State Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has sworn-in two new Judges. They are Justice Iheanyichukwu Wodi and Justice Charles Ndudi Wali.
They were sworn-in on Wednesday, 21stNovember, 2012 in Government House, Port Harcourt.
Shortly after the swearing-in, the State Governor congratulated the new Judges and urged them to protect the poor in the society.
“I think that in carrying out your assignment you should have at the back of your mind that there are poor people who are out there on the street who may not have anybody to protect them and only the Judges can protect them...Whatever you do you should be satisfied that before God you can defend yourself”, he said.
“The God we worship will certainly hold you to account if man cannot hold you to account. That should be what should be at the back of your mind when you are giving your judgement”.
He commended the judiciary for being transparent and linked his Supreme Court victory of October, 2007 to the transparency in the judicial system.
