Gov Ugwuanyi donates vehicles to Nigeria Prisons
Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu has donated two Toyota Hiace buses to the Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS), in the state.
Receiving the vehicles at the weekend in Enugu, the Controller of NPS Enugu state Command, Mr Ndubuisi Ogbodo, lauded Ugwuanyi for the gesture and other support from the administration.
Ogbodo said that the vehicles would facilitate justice dispensation and delivery among inmates of prisons within the state, especially as the logistics of moving inmates to courts had been a serious challenge.
“We thank God for the governor in remembering us, the prisons service, and giving us two brand new Toyota Hiace vehicles.
“These vehicles will go a long way to alleviate the logistics difficulties we have been having in the command as it concerns transporting inmates to court.
“We have over 92 courts which we convey inmates to in the state and their movement will not be easy if the command lack the vehicles to meet up the cases of these inmates.
“I am sure these operational vehicles will help to re-vigorate justice delivery and dispensation; which will greatly help to further decongest the prisons in the state,’’ he said.
The controller also thanked the governor over the ongoing renovation work he is personally doing in some prison cells within Enugu.
“The entire command is grateful to the governor in his personal quest to add value and better the lots of inmates in all the prisons within the command,’’ he said.
Ogbodo, however, appealed for more vehicles from the state government, organisations and philanthropists in order for the command to address logistics challenges.
The state command has four prisons including: Enugu Prisons; Nsukka Prisons; Oji River Prisons; and Eziagu Farm Settlement
