Four branches of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in Rivers State, have berated the Port Harcourt branch of the association over its decision to challenge the amendment of the Rivers State High Court Law 2001 by the State House of Assembly in court.
Chairman of the Port Harcourt branch of the association, Mr. Dennis Okwakpan, had at the weekend issued a press release, condemning the passage and subsequent signing into law of the amendment bill by Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, saying the law, if allowed to operate, would humiliate the judges, who would be taking instructions from their junior, and moreover, who is not a judicial officer.
But, in another statement issued yesterday in Port Harcourt, four branches of NBA in the state, including Ahoada, Isiokpo, Bori, and Degema, said they were not part of the statement by the Port Harcourt branch, and urged the general public to disregard it as the branches never met and resolved to take such decision.
