FCTA to collaborate with Prisons, other para-military groups

The FCT Administration has assured that it will continue to collaborate with the Nigerian Prisons Ser­vice and other para military or­ganisations in the FCT to enable them perform their statutory functions.
 
The FCT Minister made this disclosure while receiving a del­egation from the Nigerian Pris­ons Service, FCT Command, led by the new Controller, Mr. Sylvester Nwakuche who paid him a working visit in his office recently.
 
The Minister reiterated that para-military organisations and other security agencies play very important roles in the mainte­nance law and order, peace and tranquillity in the Territory and must be motivated to continue in that direction.
 
“The FCT Administration will provide immediate succour to some of the challenges facing the Nigerian Prisons installa­tions in the Territory to encour­age the rehabilitation and refor­mation of convicts,” he said.
 
The Minister remarked that he is in direct discussion with the Ministry of Interior on some of the issues raised by the Controller; adding that they will at the end, be of benefit to the Nigerian Prisons Service and other residents of the FCT when they come to fruition.
 
The Minister promised to fast track the issue of land en­croachment around the Kuje facility to mitigate any negative occurrence, adding, “we will continue to speak and engage on how we can solve them one after the other”.
 
Earlier in his remarks, the new Controller of Prisons, FCT Command, Mr. Sylvester Nwakuche appealed to the Min­ister to continue to support the FCT Command of the Nigerian Prison Service, particularly in the area of solar lighting within the Kuje Prisons Service vicin­ity.
