Nyesom Wike, the governor of River State has named a block in the newly-inaugurated Justice Iche Ndu Magistrates’ court Complex in the State after his wife, Justice Eberechi Nyesom Wikev, ahead of his handover on May 29th 2023.
Speaking at the inauguration of the complex on Thursday, Wike said the reason behind his action is to preserve his legacies in the State as a two-term Governor of the State.
Wike also named other blocks after some top judicial officers in the State, noting that the first building by my immediate left has to be named Justice Chibuzor Amadi Block.
He said, “And then we remembered one of our own who is late, Justice Elizabeth Membre. Block B is named after her. The President of the Customary Court of Appeal was also a Magistrate before, so the third block is named after the President of the Customary Court of Appeal
“And then the last block, I said I will not go empty-handed. Every day, people say Wike you are generous. If I’m generous to myself, is it bad? So as I am leaving, let me also name that one after my wife.
“So, it will be named after Justice Suzzette Eberechi Nyesom Wike. What matters to me is Nyesom Wike, so my name is there and that block is for my dear wife,” Wike said.
