FEC Approves N2.8bn Contract To Decongest Prisons Electronically.

The sum of #2.8bn was approved by the federal executive council  to help speed up the decongestion of crowded prisons in the country by digital connectivity.

The project will establish a digital web-based, integrated system that will monitor all prisons real-time to determine the number of inmates, their movements between courts, those awaiting trial or wrongly imprisoned and the time required to conclude the cases of individual prisoners.

The FEC meeting was presided over  by the vice-president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

The attorney-general of the federation and the minister of justice, Mr Abubakar Malami, spoke on the project as the meeting rose.

He said the stakeholders to be connected to the system included his office, the Nigeria prisons service and the Nigeria police.

With the envisaged system in place, the AGF said the analogue method of using visitation committees to determine those inmates to be pardoned would become a thing of the past
