FG to site Law School Campus in Rivers State – Gov. Wike

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has confirmed plans by the Federal Government to site a Nigerian Law School campus in Port Harcourt, the state capital.

Gov. Wike, who spoke on Wednesday in Port Harcourt, the state capital, said the FG has given approval for a Nigeria Law School campus to be sited in the state.

Wike told the audience that this is the second time the offer was made for a Law School to be built in the state.

“We have gotten approval to have a Law School in Port Harcourt. It is not about me, it is the legacy you leave. This was a Law School that was given to Port Harcourt, but the previous government rejected it and it was sent to Yenagoa.

“Today, we have that approval that there must be a Law School in Port Harcourt and I can assure you in six months’ time, our Law School will be the best Law School in Nigeria,” he said.

He also announced that a Federal High Court in Abuja has awarded $1.1billion to the State in a lawsuit against the Federal Government.

The $1.1 Billion is entitlements of Rivers State based on the decision of the Supreme Court over production sharing contracts arising from the Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contracts.
