By Aloysius Umalo, Makurdi
Officers and men of the Nigerian Correctional Service who were recently elevated to higher ranks have been decorated by the Zonal Coordinator of the Service in charge of Zone ‘H’, Makurdi, Benue State in North Central, Dr. Suanu Kinane.
Addressing the officers after the decoration exercise, Dr. Kinane commended the Controller General of the Service, Haliru Nababa for working assiduously to improve the welfare of personnel of the Service.
He tasked the officers and men to consider themselves as refined officers of great repute stressing that they must be abreast with the new rules of engagement and think differently based on the responsibilities before them.
“They must conduct themselves more professionally to fit into the new ranks they are carrying now and show more commitment than ever”.
Dr. Kinane appealed to the Controller General of the Nigerian Correctional Service to engage President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in constructive discussions to enhance the welfare of personnel and improve the condition of Correctional Centers across the country.
The Zonal Coordinator charged the newly promoted officers to consider their elevation as an additional call to duty and demand for an increase in service delivery to their fatherland, urging them to demonstrate more competence and commitment to justify their new ranks and offices.
“You must maintain and sustain the sanctity of the service in your new positions of responsibility. Be of good conduct to project the good image of Nigeria positively to the outside world”.
Meanwhile, the newly promoted Deputy Controller of Corrections, Tanko Ibrahim Idris commended authorities for considering them worthy of the elevation and assured them that they were challenged to work harder and promised to place the interest of the service over and above personal interests.
At least, more than 30 officers and men of the Nigerian Correctional Service serving under Zone H located in Makurdi were elevated to higher ranks and positions of responsibility.
