RIVERS STATE GOVERNMENT PROMISES TO UPGRADE FACILITIES AT NIGERIAN LAW SCHOOL, BAYELSA CAMPUS – To Construct Two New Hostels & Build A Brand-new 1500-capacity Multi-Purpose Hall

Rivers State Government has pledged to construct two new hostels that will accommodate nine hundred students each at the Nigerian Law School, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. The State Government pledged to also build a 1,500-capacity Multi-Purpose Hall at the School. Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike announced this today, 29 August 2020, when he visited the School in company of the Director General of the Nigerian Law School, Professor Isa Hayatu Chiroma, SAN.

Governor Wike said the gesture was part of the state government's contribution to the development of legal education in the country. His words:


"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. This project will be executed immediately because we do not make promises without fulfilling them. I have directed the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice to write to the Director General to forward the design, so we can commence work immediately," he stated.


Governor Wike noted that despite the economic challenges faced by the state, it will source funds from its scarce resources to execute the project, noting that the present economic challenges would not stop his administration from solving problems.




Responding, the Director General of the Nigerian Law School, Professor Isa Hayatu Chiroma, SAN, expressed gratitude to Governor Wike and the Rivers State Government for the support, saying the School would ever remain grateful.

Other members of the Nigerian Law School present at the occasion included the Deputy Director-General & Head, Nigeria Law School, Bayelsa Campus, Dr. David Efevwerhan, some members of both the academic and the non academic staff.
