The Federal Government has read the Riot Act to personnel of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS), vowing to dismiss anyone discovered to be sabotaging efforts at keeping its custodial facilities safe.
The Minister of Interior, Hon. Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, gave the warning on Wednesday in Abuja during an inspection tour of the NCoS headquarters and the Kuje Custodial Centre.
We are ready to show the door to whoever wants to sabotage us,” he warned shortly after inspecting the Kuje facility, which was attacked last year.
The Minister said he was at the Ministry to implement the ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda of President Bola Tinubu and would not allow anyone to sabotage his efforts.
He vowed to make the Service “a correctional institution rather than a condemnation service.”
He also promised a lot of reforms in the Service, soliciting the support of the personnel to actualize the reforms.
