I won’t resign over frequent jail breaks – Aregbesola
Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, has said that he won’t be resigning over the frequent jail breaks in the country in the past one year.
Responding to questions from State House reporters after the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Wednesday December 8, the Minister stated that there’s no need for calls for his resignation because it wasn’t for lack of preparedness that the attacks were successful.
Aregbesola revealed that the security around Correctional Centres will be stepped up, following jail breaks in Owerri, Oyo, Kabba and Jos in the last few months.
“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.
“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, 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”.
