According to him, building a new campus of the Nigerian Law School in Nigeria should be based on needs assessment and not on political aggrandizement. jamb results

The Governor explained that due to the current insufficient carrying capacity of the Nigerian Law School, there had been a call for the spreading of more campuses across the nation, but cautioned that this must not be done on the basis of political reasons.

Governor Wike added that two years ago when he attended the call to bar ceremony at the Abuja campus of the Nigerian Law School, he was repelled by the infrastructural challenges in the school.

According to him, this was what prompted the Rivers State Government to build 900-bed space hostels and 1,500 capacity auditorium for students in Yenagoa campus, and the current establishment of a new campus in Port Harcourt.
“From the record I checked, Nigerian Law School has never gotten more than N61 million to fund the Law School yearly. And I made a special appeal to support to Council of Legal Education to rehabilitate the campus in Abuja, and the Director-General said no, we have more problems in Yenagoa, leave Abuja.
“You’ll never allow your slave to attend the campus in Yenagoa. And I want to thank the DG for being a true Nigerian. As I speak to you today, the Rivers State government is investing not less than N5.1 billion on the Yenagoa campus. What is our interest? Our interest is to contribute to the development of legal education in Nigeria”.

“I will appeal, in solving this carrying capacity problem, let’s not also create other problems. It is a professional school and so we must be guided. If any state wants to have a Law School there must be a model”.
