The Federal Government has approved a new uniform for the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS).
NCoS Comptroller General (CG), Mr. Ja’afaru Ahmed who made the announcement at the inauguration of the administrative block of the Correctional Staff School (CSS) in Abuja on Thursday February 13, said the uniform was changed to reflect the agency’s new name.
Ahmed said approval of the new uniform was part of the new act signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari in July 2019.
“Very soon, you will see us in our new uniform. We have been wearing this uniform for over 100 years and we need to change it to be in tune with the new act.
“We are also putting into place measures to ensure the full implementation of the new act but there has not been any budget yet, once the budget is in place, we will be able to implement the measures we have put in place to have a better service.”
Ahmed added that the new act will also take care of staff education, health and housing.
