Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says Nigeria can only make a progress if the Executive and Legislative Arms of Government carry out their official responsibilities in line with the constitution.
The governor said this while speaking during a Special Banquet in Honour of the retiring President of Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa at the Government House Port Harcourt on Friday night.
“This country is having challenges because of the Executive and Legislative Arms of Government. If the Executive and Legislative Arms do what is right, the country would move forward.
“The National Assembly because of politics, fails to do what is right. When the Executive and Legislative Arms of Government commit errors, they pass the buck to the Judiciary.”
He added that: “Every time, there is always a constitutional amendment, but in the end nothing comes our of it. Even the one just started will not yield anything different”, he said.
“Without the Judiciary, there will be no democracy in this country. This country’s democracy is being sustained by the Judiciary “, he said.
