Rivers CJ swears in 16 magistrates

The Rivers state chief Judge, Justice Simeon Chibuzor Amadi, has charged the newly appointed magistrates of the state judiciary to take seriously the task of justice delivery in the discharge of their responsibilities.

Justice Amadi gave the charge during swearing in of 16 new magistrates in Port Harcourt, advising them against the temptation of making quick money.

He stressed the need for the new magistrates to comply with constitutional provisions and urged them to isolate themselves from friends, family members and members of the public considering the nature of their choice of job.

He warned that excuses would not be tolerated, especially from those that would be deployed to rural areas, insisting that they must be ready to serve at all times.

The new magistrates are Awuse Lilian-Ngbechi; AKA Okwudiri; Akani Wobia-Chritabel; Victor-Ihunwo; Queeneth-Ogbonda; lbanichuka Samuel; Constance Kelvin Chinaka; Martyns Yellow Doku; Amadi lsrael lsiguzoru; Akpu Obisiki-Charles, and Briggs Kingsley who were sworn in as senior magistrates on grade one.

Others were Ndukwu ThankGod; Hart Alex lsouala, Nwinee Harold Barisip who are senior magistrate grade two and Wike Lesley- Betama, Epelle Emmanuel- Sonny and Akeodi Oyaghiri who are ordinary magistrates.
