On November 30, the Rivers state government said the National Judicial Council (NJ), had recommended the extension of the appointment of the Acting Chief Judge of Rivers state, Justice Daisy Okocha from December 1, 2015 to January 15, 2016.

The state governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, accordingly approved the extension of the appointment of Justice Daisy Okocha.
