Rivers State Governor , Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has called on judges to be courageous  in the discharge  of their  constitutional  responsibility to the people .
Speaking  while  swearing-in Justice Constance Douye Green and Justice Chinwendu Nworgu as justices of the Rivers State Judiciary , Governor Wike  noted that  the present-day  realities  require strength of character  from Judges.
He said that judges who lack courage to dispense justice in line with  the  Constitution  and the Rule of Law ought to resign  from  the judiciary .

“This is a time when judges require courage in the discharge  of  their constitutional responsibilities .
“Judges should not withdraw  from cases on the ground of flimsy petitions  by  desperate politicians . Judges should always make sure that justice is done. Do not be intimidated”, the governor  said.
The two judges were  appointed by the governor  following the  recommendation  of the National Judicial Council  in line with the provisions of the  law.
