The Rivers State governor Rotimi Amaechi has sworn in Hon Justice Peter N.C. Agumagu as the new Acting Chief judge of the state.

The ceremony held Tuesday at the Government House, Port Harcourt where the governor charged the new acting Chief Judge to discharge his duties conscientiously.

Justice Agumagu was the President of the customary court of Appeal, Rivers state before his new appointment.

Governor Amaechi said the new Acting Chief Judge shall hold his office pending when the National Assembly would approve the candidate recommended for appointment as the State Chief Judge by the National Judicial Commission (NJC).

“I wish to congratulate you and say to you that you have an enormous assignment in these three months. We are proceeding with that while waiting for the resumption of the National Assembly and hoping that if they do approve the recommendation of the National Judicial Commission (NJC) we will then proceed with that and we hope that within the three months you are acting, you will discharge your responsibility.  Thank you very much and God bless you”, Amaechi said.
