We are partnering sister agencies on insecurity – NCS comptroller
By Dennis Essang, Port Harcourt
Rivers state comptroller of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS), Alex Oditah, says that there is stronger partnership between his command, paramilitary, police and other security agencies in tackling insecurity in the country.
Oditah who stated this during an event in Port Harcourt recently said the strike embarked upon by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN), was not the making of the Nigeria Correctional Service, but a fallout of one of the challenges confronting the nation which he said is insurmountable.
The state NCS boss maintained that, so far, there has been synergy between other sister security agencies, especially the police and the military as a support to the Nigeria Correctional Service, adding that the situation in country needed the support of all Nigerians.
Asked of the relationship with the Rivers state government like, Oditah said “the state government has been very supportive but we are appealing for more,” he said.
On challenges facing his command, Oditah responded “my friend, life itself is a challenge; so challenges are everywhere,” he stated.
On the issue of jail break as a result of the JUSUN strike, he explained that Rivers state will not record any jail break because of the level of support from other sister agencies.
