Retired Controller-General of the Nigeria Prison Service, NPS, Peter Ekpendu, has opened up on the high level of indiscipline amongst officers and men of the service, warning that they must obey rules.
Ekpendu made the revelation at the prisons headquarters in Abuja, yesterday, during a pulling out parade in his honour. He stressed that the issue of petitions in the service is not only alarming, but terribly embarrassing to his administration.
“I cannot understand a situation where a non-commissioned officer will have the courage to pick up his pen to write against his administration not even knowing the implications.
“Our officers have now resorted to a situation where if they want to protest about anything, they just throw the channel of communication overboard. They will write to the controller-general, Mr. President, then to the Senate president, thereafter to the House Committee on Interior and that of public petitions. They write to my minister and others. That rubbish has to stop and stop forthwith.”
The retired prison boss lauded himself, saying he did his best having presided over the affairs of the NPS from December 5, 2014 to May 17, 2016, stressing that he does not regret any action he took while in office.
