According to Aregbesola, he said that the correctional service is not intending to be a “5-star hotel”, but should be made comfortable for inmates.

“No one is advocating that it must be Transcorp Hilton but it must be comfortable, clean, hygienic and promote good health.

“Inmates should be well fed and taken care of, their dignity should be protected and should not be abused,” he said.

He added that an abused and brutalized inmate was a potential threat to the society which should not be allowed to happen.

The minister explained that the correctional facilities were intended to reform inmates for proper reintegration into society.

”An inmate must leave the correction centre, a better person, an abused and brutalized inmate is a threat to the society and a bad social missile that should not be allowed to happen. So henceforth, this should stop,” he said.

Moreover, he expressed commitment to deliver on the 3 core mandates of the current administration for the ministry which are security, economy, and transparency and he urged all agencies under the ministry to key into the mandate.
