Nigerians compare sparkling ‘prison’ service’ hotel with nation’s infamous dilapidated cells


Nigerians have been comparing the Nigerian Correctional Service Hotel with the nation’s infamous correctional facilities.

The 105-room hotel said to be an investment of the Correctional Service Multi-Purpose Co-operative Society, was inaugurated by the immediate past Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, in 2021.

However, the sparkling pictures of the “investment” posted on the correctional service’s Facebook page, left many Nigerians wondering as to the irony of such building.

The Nigerian Correctional Service Hotel was opened in 2021
Presently, many correctional facilities are reported to have fallen short of the best standard.

Inmates are said to be held in dilapidated, overcrowded cells, leading to hazardous living conditions.

The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio, recently stated that since the name of the Nigerian Prison Service was changed to Nigerian Correctional Service, there have been more jailbreaks in the country.

Unsatisfied with the images of the hotel, many users commented their frustration.


Sadeeq Shehu decried the modern facility in contrast to what he called prisons “built of mud”

He wrote, “While Nigerian Correctional Service (alias prisons) has a modern hotel, it has prisons built of mud. All Nigerian security agencies should be divested from all business ventures so that they can concentrate on the job.”

Sunday Peter Pepa opined that such an edifice is a deviation from the core objectives of the service.

“What is Nigerian Correctional service doing with hotel? This is a clear deviation from objectives. When there are so many challenges that require urgent attention in the prisons, this money should have been channeled to the appropriate areas,” he declared.

Osita Edekobi’s thoughts were not far from others.

He stated that the prisons should be better improved than having a hotel.

“Nigeria Correctional Service is an agency of the Federal Government, financed, sponsored, and empowered by the FG. What’s the essence of building hotels instead of improving our prisons across the nation? I hope it’s not what I’m thinking,” he wrote.

On assumption of office as the Minister of Interior, Dr. Tunji Olubunmi-Ojo, revealed plans that he would reform the correctional service, noting that his administration would see towards alleviating congestion in custodial centres as well as providing inmates with the opportunity for rehabilitation and reintegration into the society.

“I also would like to give assurance that under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu, we would do everything humanly possible to reform our custodial centres, such as the decongestion of those centres —of course, with beaming life, and hope we’d groom inmates and help inmates to ensure proper re-integration into the society,” he said.

How dare they try this is any other country ? Even Ghana Rwanda Cameruon!!

Correctional services dare not build a hotel for what ?

And that useless bastard Tinubu is there ?
See all Nigerians are fools!! Until you realize the only way to get a better country is only by killing all these politicians!!! I mean use matches and kill them and their families they will never allow Nigeria get better!!

Nigeria can't get better through Peter obi, because they will never allow him enter there . If you like scream and campaign obedient from now till 10 years they will rig each election to make sure their fellow their enters there so chopping continues angry


Make Una dey there dey wait for Messiah. Your gun and machete is your Messiah. Start killing them from local government counsellor to house reps to ministers to governors don't stop.

They built a hotel were they will be taking female prisoners they like to lodge instead of serving , while funding the hotel.with stolen money

Burn this country down so a new one can rise.

The money they use to build this rubbish can help with so many things .

Stupid people waiting for Peter obi. They will never ever allow him because they know he will stop their chopping. Instead of him to enter they will kill him

Hard on for Tinubu as usual. The hotel was built in 2021 and by the co-operative not the NCS itself.

I see you are so angry. Send me your account details let me wire something small to you.

It is quite unsettling to see so many people condemning this laudable project SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY EITHER DIDN'T READ THE ARTICLE BEFORE COMMENTING or THEY READ BUT FAILED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY READ! It is explicitly stated that the hotel WAS BUILT AND IS OWNED BY THE NCS MULTIPURPOSE COOPERATIVE SOCIETY! It is not owned by government or run by government but is a business enterprise owned by staff of NCS!!!!

If the minister of prison could inaugurated this why is there no reform of the correctional center?
How I wish failed political office holders are jailed like other masses, they would have empathize with those there
