Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has announced the release of N50 million for the burial ceremony of the state-born legal icon, Justice Adolphus Karibi-Whyte.

Governor Wike made the announcement yesterday, through the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Tammy Danagogo, as preparations for the burial of the retired Supreme Court judge gained momentum.

Wike, who commiserated with the family of the late eminent jurist, described Karibi-Whyte as a foremost legal icon at the national and international levels, saying that he deserved nothing less than a befitting state burial.

The governor expressed this when he briefed members of the family, who paid a courtesy call on him in Port Harcourt.

Presenting the cheque, the SSG noted that Wike has again demonstrated his love for the Kalabari people, which the governor has shown through various developmental projects and welfare support to individuals and organizations.

He urged them to be peaceful and deploy the fund to judicious use.

Meanwhile, commendation service for the late judge will hold on Friday, September 25, 2020, by 10 am at St. Cyprian’s Anglican Church while the burial service will hold in Abonnema in Akuku Toru LGA on Saturday.
