<p class="">President Muhammadu Buhari has signed into law the bill changing the Nigeria Prison Service to Correctional Service.</p>

<h1>The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Sen. Ita Enang, confirmed this development when he briefed State House correspondents in Abuja on Wednesday.</h1>

<p class="">According to him, the Correctional Service is made up of Custodial and Non Custodial Service.</p>

<p class="">He said that the Non Custodial Service was intended to be a place of reformation and that the person sentenced under this will not stay in custody but will have remediation.</p>

<p class="">”<em>There are, according to the Act, two main faculties of the Correctional Service, namely: (a) Custodial Service (b) Non-custodial Service</em></p>

<p class=""><em>”The Custodial Service is to: (a) take custody and control of persons legally interned in safe, secure and humane conditions.</em></p>

<p class="">(b) Conveying remand persons to and from courts in motorized formations;</p>

<p class="">(c) Identifying the existence and causes of anti-social behaviours of inmates</p>

<p class="">(d) Conducting risk and needs assessment aimed at developing appropriate correctional treatment methods for reformation, rehabilitation and reintegration;</p>

<p class="">(e) Implementing reformation and rehabilitation programmes to enhance the reintegration of inmates back into the society.</p>

<p class="">(f) Initiating behavior modification in inmates through the provision of medical, psychological, spiritual and counseling services for all offenders including violent extremists.</p>

<p class="">(g) empowering inmates through the deployment of educational and vocational skills training programmes, and facilitating incentives and income generation through Custodial Centres, farms and industries</p>

<p class="">(h) Administering borstal and related institutions;</p>

<p class="">(I) Providing support to facilitate the speedy disposal of cases of persons awaiting trial; and It further provides in Section 12 (2) (c):</p>

<p class="">“<em>that where an inmate sentenced to death has exhausted all legal procedures for appeal and a period of 10 years has elapsed without execution of the sentence, the Chief Judge may commute the sentence of death to life imprisonment.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>”And Section 12 (8) empowers the state Controller of the Service to reject more intakes of inmates where it is apparent that the correctional centre in question is filled to capacity.</em></p>

<p class="">According to the presidential aide, the non-custodial faculty of the Correctional Service is responsible for the administration of non-custodial measures, namely: Community Service, probation, parole, restorative justice measures and such other measures as a court of competent jurisdiction may order.</p>

<p class="">He disclosed that the restorative Justice measure approved in the Act include <em>”victim-offender mediation, family group conferencing, community mediation and other conciliatory measures as may be deemed necessary pre-trial, trial during imprisonment or even post- imprisonment stages.”</em></p>
