Late Justice Tobi was exceptional jurist says Dickson

The Bayelsa State Governor, Mr. Henry Seriake Dickson has described late legal icon and retired Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, Justice Niki Tobi, as a jurist with exception, reports ITReams.
Dickson made this discription while paying tribute to the late jurist, describing his dead as a personal loss to him, the government and people of the State as well as the entire Ijaw nation.

"In his demise, the Ijaw nation and indeed Nigeria have lost one of its very best and he will be painfully missed by all," he said.

The governor in a condolence message to the family of the deceased, the government and people of Delta State, said Justice Niki Tobi was "a thoroughbred, highly principled, upright and intelligent personality, whose contributions to the legal profession and nation building would remain indelible in the history of Nigeria."

Dickson said he received the news of Justice Tobi’s death with shock, sadness and a great sense of loss.

As Chairman of the 2005 National Political Reforms Conference, under the administration of President Olusegun Obasanjo, Dickson said, Justice Tobi gave exceptional and enviable leadership to arguably the best brains in the land in the process of recreating a nation we could all truly call our own.

Justice Tobi, a native of Esanma in Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State, died on June 19 2016, after a protracted illness at the age of 76 years.
