FG Renames Vehicle Used In Conveying Prisoners To Green Maria
The vehicles used for conveying inmates from prisons to courts will now be known as Green Maria instead of Black Maria following the approval for name change by the Federal Government.
A bill has also been transmitted to the National Assembly for the renaming of the Nigeria Prisons Service (NPS) to Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS) to give it a new image.
Dambazau said the renaming was to reflect the current thinking on the rehabilitation of inmates in the country.
Dambazau said due to the challenge of vehicles, the dispensation of just was being delayed, saying justice delayed is justice denied.
“There are over 5,000 courts and 240 prisons. Daily, we need to convey inmates awaiting trials to these courts. For speedy dispensation of justice, we need the vehicles. If there are no vehicles, there will be problem. Justice delayed, is justice denied,” he said.
