From Now On, Nigerian Prisoners Must Be Well Fed, Taken Cared Of – Aregbesola

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, on
Monday, warned the correctional officers of
the Nigeria Correctional Service to ensure
that the inmates are comfortable, clean,
hygienic and of good health.
Mr Aregbesola gave the warning in Abuja
when the Permanent Secretary of the
ministry, Georgina Ehuriah, officially handed
over to him.
According to him, although the correctional
service is not intended to be a “five-star
hotel”, it should, nevertheless, be made
comfortable for inmates.
“No one is advocating that it must be
Transcorp Hilton but it must be
comfortable, clean, hygienic and promote
good health.
“Inmates should be well fed and taken care
of, their dignity should be protected and
should not be abused,” he said.
He added that an abused and brutalized
inmate was a potential threat to the society
which should not be allowed to happen.
The minister explained that the correctional
facilities were intended to reform inmates
for proper reintegration into society.
”An inmate must leave the correction
centre, a better person, an abused and
brutalized inmate is a threat to the society
and a bad social missile that should not be
allowed to happen. So henceforth, this
should stop,” he said.
Also, he expressed commitment to
delivering on the three core mandates of the
current administration for the ministry.
While identifying these as security, economy,
and transparency, he urged all agencies
under the ministry and staff to key into the
mandate.
