Even though he is the Governor of River State, Bar. Nyesom Wike says his administration will construct two new hostels that will accommodate nine hundred students each at the Nigerian Law School, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
In addition, the River state Government will build 1, 500-capacity Multi-Purpose Hall at the school.
Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike announced Saturday when he visited the school in company with the Director General of the Nigerian Law School, Professor Isa Hayatu Chiroma.
He said the gesture was part of the state government’s contribution to the development of legal education in the country.
“Rivers State also belongs to the South-South, so we think that we should also make our own contribution. Accordingly, our State will construct two new hostels to accommodate nine hundred students each and also build a multipurpose hall that will accommodate 1,500 students.
“Ordinarily, this school was supposed to be located in Port Harcourt, but the former administration rejected the offer made to them.
“You know also that Bayelsa State was created out of Rivers State. Hence, we are still the same and whatever I can do in Rivers State, I can also do in Bayelsa State,” he stated.
