The African Bar Association has conferred on Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, the life membership of its council for reviving and stabilising the state judiciary.
The conferment of the life membership on the governor was conveyed via a letter presented to him on Tuesday by the President of the African Bar Association, Mr Hannibal Uwaifo, during a courtesy call at the Government House, Port Harcourt.
Uwaifo said the African Bar Association considers the development actions of Wike worthy of commendation as he has proved to be a good ambassador of the legal profession.
Speaking at the event, Wike said he would continue to improve on the Rule of Law which, he stated, is vital to the development of the society.
He explained that the crisis that rocked the state judiciary lasted for so long because members of the bar failed to speak against the ills being committed.
