I’LL NOT CALL ANY OF YOU TO DO WHAT IS WRONG, GOV. FUBARA TELLS JUDGES

…Swears-in Stephens Jumbo as new High Court Judge

Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara has said he will not ask any of the judges in the state to do what is wrong, but require that they dispense justice and do what is right by standing on the side of truth always.

Governor Fubara stated this while swearing in Stephens Dirialakeibama Jumbo as a Judge of the Rivers State High Court at the Executive Chamber, Government House, Port Harcourt on Thursday.

The governor charged the newly sworn-in Judge to stand by the truth so that posterity will be fair to him in whatever decision or judgement he is to make while discharging his duty without fear or favour.

“I do not know the reason why you were not sworn-in at that time. I also do not want to bother to know the reason, but what is important today is that God’s plan for you has been fulfilled.”

He called on members of the bench to always defend and protect the interest of the state, and expressed confidence that the newly sworn-in Judge will not disappoint but make the state and Judiciary proud.

The governor thanked Rivers people for their support, adding that Rivers State belongs to everyone of us appealing that it is our responsibility to defend and sustain the integrity of the State.
