Senate moves to change Port Harcourt Law Campus to Continuous Legal Education Centre

Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, Tuesday advocated for a change of the Dr. Nabo Graham Douglas Port Harcourt campus of the Nigerian Law School to the Centre for the promotion of Continuous Legal Education in the country.

It was said the committee’s advice was premised on the conviction that the Port Harcourt Law Campus has satisfied the global best standard required for such a centre.

Chairman of the committee, Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele affirmed this while exercising an oversight function of the campus accompanied by his members in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.

As Bamidele was being conducted on the inspection tour by the state Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, he declared that he was amazed at the quality of facilities provided by the governor for the training of law graduates and, averred that it would prepare them for the challenges of the profession.

The lawmaker also said Wike has set global best standard that not only the law students would use the facilities but practicing lawyers.

He added, “This is one of the happiest oversight visits we have made in the life of own leadership of the Senate Committee.

It’s a celebration of our democracy. It’s a celebration of leadership. It’s a celebration of an accomplishment. So, as part of our own advice, both to the Council of Legal Education and the Nigerian Law School is to even, based on the standard that has been set in the Port Harcourt Campus, ensure to reserve some of the rooms, dedicated to ensuring that our continuous legal education is taken very seriously using the Port Harcourt Campus as the base for this.”

The Senate committee boss added that the eventual realization of the campus underscored the fact that when leaders were able to work together beyond partisan, ethnic and religious lines, they could take Nigeria to the next desired level.

Besides, the lawmakers inspected the Rivers state House of Assembly residential quarters that is near completion.

For the 32 units of four-bedroom duplexes at the legislators’ quarters, Senator Bamidele said Governor Wike has also blazed a trail in the provision of housing facility for lawmakers.

We have been around the country by the grace of God. We have interacted with our colleague parliamentarians at the State level in different States’ Houses of Assembly. We know where they live. We know how they live and we know that they are no less committed.

Coming here to see what we are seeing today, again, I want to say it’s a confirmation of the fact that you have as governor, a trailblazer and someone who will continue to excel in setting a global best practice standard.”

Senate Minority Leader, Senator Philip Aduda on his part, commended Governor Wike for his laudable projects and explained that his visible democracy dividends as provided in the state necessitated the clamour for him to move to national politics.

Also, Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ikuinyi-Owaji Ibani, affirmed that Wike’s decision to construct a new campus of the Nigerian Law School in Port Harcourt is a sheer demonstration of his patriotism and commitment to the nation.
