Abdulrahman Dambazau, the Minister of Interior, has explained why the Federal Government is investing in the building of prisons across the country.

Dambazau spoke at the commissioning of some projects and newly acquired vehicles at the Prisons Service (NPS) headquarters in Abuja on Friday.

According to him, most of the existing prisons in the country were over a century and needed to be replaced

“We are building prisons but we are not increasing the number of prisons”, he said.

“Most likely, we are reducing it. Most of our prisons are more that a century old. What we are doing is to build new ones that meets the global standard.”

He said the new direction of the current administration was to focus on the persons involved in criminal acts and not the crime itself, saying it was the only way to reform offenders.

We have shifted focus from the crime to the criminals. We are not seeking vengeance for the fact that the offender is human and can change,” he said.

“They saw it was empty, and they turned back. And that’s because we shared everything to beneficiaries as and when due. For accountability, when we started distribution months ago, I ensured to set up a high powered committee that included myself, my deputy, the State @OfficialPDPNig Chairman and Chairmen of all political parties in the state, including traditional rulers, and others.”
“The core of my mandate remains the crucial drive to give Bauchi State citizens a better prospect and more excellent opportunity for a prosperous life. We are doing this, and we will continue to do more. #GreaterBauchi.”
