Wike Defends His Choice Of Justice Amadi As Chief Judge

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has defended his choice of Justice Samuel Amadi as the next chief Judge of Rivers State saying he has forwarded his name to the State House of Assembly for confirmation.

Some section of the judiciary had kicked against the recommendation by the National Judicial Commission (NJC) and appointment of Justice Amadi as the Chief Judge to replace the retiring Justice Adanma Iyayi-Lamikanran saying he was not the most senior judge of the High Court in the state.

They argued that according to the tradition in the judiciary Justice Joy Akpughunum is the most senior High Court Judge in the state and should be appointed to the position.
