Nigerian Prisons Service changes name to Nigerian Correctional Service

A bill signed into law on Wednesday by Pres. Buhari has changed the Nigerian Prisons Service to Nigerian Correctional Service.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang, made the disclosure while speaking with journalists covering the State House in Abuja on Wednesday. .


The move was meant to give Nigerian prisons a new image and make it function more as a correctional institution rather than mere shelter for persons serving jail terms.
