The Senate has confirmed the nomination of Haliru Nababa as Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Correctional Service, NCS.
Nababa was confirmed, after consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Interior.
Presenting the report, the Chairman of the Committee on Interior, Kashim Shettima, said there was no petition or incriminating report against the nominee, adding that, Nababa displayed a high level of intelligence and appeared to have the temerity to hold the office of Comptroller-General.
Shettima observed that Nababa satisfied the requirements of Section 3(2), as contained in the Nigerian Correctional Service Act, 2019.
According to him, the nominee, while appearing for screening before the Committee, identified a lack of adequate supply of arms and ammunition to curb jailbreak in the country and lack of adequate funding, as some of the challenges faced by the NCS.
