FG Spends N14,000 Daily To Feed Each Prisoner – Dambazzau | The Precision

government is annually spending N10billion for feeding of prisoners in
the country, minister of Interior, AbdurRahman Dambazzau has said.


With the country’s estimated prison population of 57,000, the
government is roughly spending N14,000 for a three-square meal of each
prisoner per day.
Speaking at a town hall meeting in Kaduna on Tuesday, Dambazzau said
his ministry is searching inward to see how it can harness some revenue
sources in the sector to complement government’s efforts.
“It is unacceptable for government to be committing N10 billion every year on feeding of prison inmates,” Dambazzau said. (BizAfricaDaily)
