Bola Tinubu, the President-elect of Nigeria, has promised to fulfill all the campaign promises he made during his presidential campaign under the tagline “Renewed Hope.”
Tinubu made this statement while inaugurating the Magistrates’ Court Complex in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, built by the current Governor Nyesom Wike’s administration and named after a former Chief Judge of the state, Justice Iche Ndu (retd.). Tinubu assured Nigerians of his commitment to fulfill all his political promises when he assumes office on May 29.
Tinubu also stressed the need for a united Nigeria and the rigorous fight against poverty, not just economic poverty, but also poverty of thinking, standards, and reasoning. He praised Wike for building the courthouse, calling it a commendable way to fight corruption in the judiciary.
The President-elect also spoke about the importance of taking care of judges and making sure they work in comfortable and safe conditions. He believes this will prevent them from being corrupt, and their welfare should be a priority to ensure the fair dispensation of justice. Tinubu pledged to review all necessary policies to promote the welfare of judges and improve the justice system.
Tinubu said that there was a need for tolerance, cooperation, and living together in the same platform without quarreling with one another. Earlier, Wike emphasized the need for maintenance culture in Nigeria and called for the Council of Legal Education not to neglect the Dr Nabo Graham-Douglas Campus of the Nigerian Law School in Port Harcourt, which he built.
Wike expressed his dissatisfaction with the lack of maintenance at the school and committed to providing funds to ensure that the facility is maintained properly.
