We’ve No Hotel’ – Nigerian Correctional Service Clears Air

The Nigerian Correctional Service, NCoS, has said that the Correctional Service Multi-Purpose Co-operative Society, COCOS, Hotel and Gardens Project was not funded by the Federal Government.

The agency’s Public Relations Officer, Umar Abubakar, stated this on Wednesday in Abuja, saying the hotel was an investment of the NCoS Cooperative Society.

The spokesman, who reacted to issues raised about the facility, said that the hotel, shared on the Service’s official Facebook page, was strictly about staff welfare, stressing that it was a product of strategic thinking and efficiency on the part of the agency‘s cooperative unit.

Abubakar, who wondered why some people would discourage meaningful investments, said that the “COCOS hotels and Gardens” was inaugurated on 1 March 2021, by the former Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola.

According to him, the said report is not only misleading but also targeted towards misinforming the public.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the said hotel was built in the year 2021 and it’s exclusively owned by the Correctional Cooperative Society.

“The cooperative society was established for all personnel of the service and was formed in the year 1996,” he said.
