Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers says his administration will establish a new judicial division in Bonny to reduce the problems of justice delivery.
Wike announced this during a courtesy visit by the Okpo Club of Nigeria to his office in Port Harcourt.
He said that the possibility would be carefully studied in order not to expose the state to torturing legal processes from divisional high courts.
The governor restated his administration’s stance against politics of exclusion.
He assured that every ethnic group in the state would benefit from his developmental projects.
He said that the National Judicial Commission (NJC) was constitutionally empowered to recommend who becomes a chief judge and urged the judiciary not to politicise the appointment of officers by the NJC.
