Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has reemphasized that the Dr. Nabo Graham Douglas Campus of the Nigerian Law School in Port Harcourt has been provided to be a self-sustaining institution in Nigeria.

Governor Wike made the statement

when he conducted the Chairman of the Council of Legal Education, Chief Emeka Ngige, SAN, together with the Director General of Nigeria Law School, Prof. Isa Hayatu Chiroma, SAN, and other dignitaries around structures within the Law Campus.

Wike said the acquisition of the adjoining property to the campus will enable the operators of the campus to use them for sundry commercial and revenue-generating activities in order to meet the financial needs of the Law School in Port Harcourt.

He said: “We are using this opportunity to present the Certificate of Occupancy of the property we have acquired and paid for by the Rivers State government for the Nigerian Law School, Dr. Nabo Graham Douglas, Port Harcourt Campus to you (Chairman).
