The Abdulsamad Rabiu initiative for Africa, an initiative of the Chairman of
BUA group of Companies, Alhaji Abdulsalam Rabiu has given the Nigerian Correctional Service a security sector grant of five hundred million naria as part of her social development program.
While presenting the cheque to the Controller General of the Service, Haliru Nababa at the National Headquarters Abuja, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Initiative, Dr. Ubong Udo said the organization was set up as a vehicle to drive the Chairman’s mission for Nigeria and Africa as well as create a platform where Nigerians and Africans can take responsibility to solve their own developmental problems by looking inwards.
“This initiative has three thematic areas which include Health, Education and Social development and NCoS through her rehabilitation and reformation programs fell under the third thematic area hence the grant”.
In his response, the CG Correctional Services applauded the initiative and promised to make judicious use of the grant to improve on the Security of Custodial Centers by adding another layer of technological surveillance that will enhance remote monitoring framework.
He also said that the grant would provide the service with equipment in ensuring that the security solutions cover a wider range of Custodial Centers and reduce the chances of further attacks.
The CG promised to expand the Service by employing more technology to make the Service at par with international Correctional Centres in developed countries.
