NCoS Redeploys 7 DCGs as Nababa Decorates Promoted Officers
The Controller General (CG) of the Correctional Service, Haliru Nababa, has approved the redeployment of seven Deputy Controller Generals (DCGs) of Corrections.
This is part of Nababa’s strategies to reposition the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) for better service delivery, a statement by OF Enobore, NCoS Spokesperson, revealed.
Those affected in the new posting are; DCG Tunde Ladipo moved from Non-Custodial to Health and Welfare; While DCG Sylvester Nwakuche, who hitherto was in charge of Training and Staff Development (TSD) now takes over as DCG Non-Custodial.
Others are Emilia Oputa Adaobi, DCG Covering Duty Training and Staff Development; Uche Nwobi, DCG Inmates Training and Productivity (ITP); Akinjijonwi Tosin DCG Works and Logistics (W&L); Ahmadu Adamu DCG Human Resource (HR); Ahmadu Magaji DCG Finance and Account.
The posting, according to Enobore, is geared towards injecting new ideas in the management of the Service to address emerging challenges as well as meet the huge expectations of the public, particularly in the implementation of the NCoS Act 2019.
Meanwhile, the NCoS CG, on Wednesday, decorated newly-promoted officers and men of the Service, in Abuja.
Nababa disclosed that plans are at advanced stage to facilitate the early payment of promotion arrears from appropriate authorities.
He said: “As has often been said, promotion is a call for higher responsibilities, dedication to duty and loyalty. Therefore my administration expects no less from officers and men across board.”
Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, tasked the newly-promoted officers to see the protection of custodial facilities across the nation, as their primary responsibility, pledging the Interior Minister, Rauf Aregbesola’s support.
