Jail Break: I Won't Resign - Aregbesola
Sequel to the frequent jailbreak being witnessed across different correctional centres across the country, the former Osun State governor, and the interior minister who is in charge of the ministry has retaliated that he wouldn't resign from his office.
It is instructive to note that, resignation is one of the ways the western head usually bow out of office if such occurrence happens but Aregbesola has said he will never resign. He made this known yesterday after the Federal Executive Council meeting in Abuja.
But the minister, whose ministry oversees the Nigeria Correctional Service which runs the Correctional Centres across the country, said: “As to whether it calls for my resignation, I still don’t see any need for that because it’s not for lack of preparedness that the attacks were successful. No.”
Aregbesola, however, assured that government would step up security around the Correctional Centres in view of the jail breaks in Owerri, Oyo, Kabba and Jos in the last few months.
According to him: “What I can assure Nigerians is this. Yes, as contextual as these attacks and the successes such criminals are having, we are upping our game and we will not allow it, we will prevent any such opportunistic attack and even make it impossible. And that is what the state must do.
“We are working with all arms of government particularly the security to make our custodial facilities impregnable. We will not rest until that is achieved. That’s the assurance I want to give Nigerians”.
