Nigerians have been urged to support the truly reformed inmates within their locality for them to have soft landing into the society.

Deputy Controller of Prisons (DCG) in charge of operations, Mr Babatunde Ekundayo made the call during his pulling out parade and retirement ceremony at Prisons Staff College, Barnawa, Kaduna.

The retiring DCG operations who is endowed with native, academic and spiritual intelligence explained that members of the public have a role to play in offenders rehabilitation and management, saying that prisoners are products of the society, hence the need to be given care and support for easy reintegration into the society.


In his farewell speech, DCG Babatunde said, to meet up with the task ahead, it was pertinent for officers and men of the service to embrace self educational advancement and creative therapies such as arts, music, sports and drama which he said were necessary ingredients for inmates recovery that will enable them become better citizens after being discharged.

The former national coordinator, paramilitary at the office of the national security adviser, expressed satisfaction with his fulfilment and contributions towards the visible changes evident in the service.

He commended the current administration under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari for his efforts at repositioning the service via adequate budgetary allocation which is evident in addressing inmates welfare, after care services, feeding and medical care amongst other logistics and operational needs.

The retiring DCG operations, who was also a one-time training officer in the administrative directorate and the controller of prisons training and special duties reminded officers and men of the service that, Nigeria Prisons Service under the leadership of CG Ahmed Jafaru has zero tolerance for indolence and mediocrity, hence the need for excellence. creativity and innovation for optimal performance.

According to the one-time Nigerian delegation on Migration and Prisons Transfer with UK, the need for training and retraining of staff becomes imperative to enhance their capacity, pointing out that, the three thousand capacity prisons to be built across the six geo political zones within the country will change the face of Nigerian prisons to centers of learning.

The astute administrator added that, the new Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015, if fully domesticated in all the states of the federation, will help reduce the over use of imprisonment for first offenders in the country.

The social engineer who at one time played a lead role for the redeployment of seconded correction officers to UN Mission in Liberia, Darfur and South Sudan amongst others, is widely travelled and has attended courses and conferences both locally and globally.
