The federal government Wednesday in Abuja announced the change of the name of Nigeria Prisons’ Service (NPS) to Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS).
The name change was the fallout of the assent of President Muhammadu Buhari to a new bill, Nigeria Correctional Service Bill, passed by the eight National Assembly.

Briefing State House correspondents on the bill which has now become an Act of the National Assembly, the president’s liaison officer, Senator Ita Enang, said the new Act creates two faculties, Custodian and Non-custodian faculties within the service.

The change in name follows the assent of President Buhari to the Nigerian Correctional Service Bill, 2019. The President also endorsed the change of name of Federal Universities of Agriculture, Makurdi into Joseph Sarwuan Tarka University, Makurdi, after the late Tiv politician, who was a senator in the Second Republic and a minister of communications in the Gowon era.
