In order to carry out that commitment, Governor Wike on Monday presented Chief Emeka Ngige, SAN, the chairman of the Council of Legal Education, with the Certificate of Occupancy (C of 0) for adjoining structure to the campus that the Rivers State government had obtained.
The presentation was made when Governor Wike led Chief Emeka Ngige, SAN, Director General of the Council of Legal Education, Prof. Isa Hayatu Chiroma, SAN, and other dignitaries around structures inside the Law Campus that are finished and ready for use.
In order to meet the financial requirements of the Law School in Port Harcourt, Governor Wike stated that the acquiring of the adjoining property to the school will allow the operators of the institution to use them for various commercial and revenue-generating operations.
“We are using this opportunity to present the Certificate of Occupancy of the property we have acquired and paid for by the Rivers State government for the Nigerian Law School, Dr. Nabo Graham Douglas, Port Harcourt Campus to you (Chairman). We are giving the property to you for the purposes of making some revenue to run this campus. Whatever revenue derived is to be utilised for this campus alone.” – Wike said.
The governor added that;
“Very soon, the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice and the Director General will meet to prepare a Memorandum of Understanding. It will ensure that you won’t take revenue from here to subsidise for other campuses. Any money you make here, put it here in this campus.”
Governor Wike also informed them that now that all of the campus’ buildings have been built, the state government is waiting for the Council of Legal Education to pick a date for the campus’ formal transfer to them.
