Explaining why he named one of the buildings after his wife, the outgoing Rivers State Governor said; "And then the last block, I said I will not go empty-handed.

He added; "Why did we name this place after Justice Ndu? During his tenure as Chief Judge, he did very well – it was the period I was the Chief of Staff. You see a Chief Judge coming with dignity. You see a Chief Judge and you know that he is a Chief Judge and he contributed to the growth of the judiciary."
