Nigerian Prisons Service

 The Works and Logistics Directorate is headed by  ...

The Works and Logistics Directorate is the infrastructural mainframe Directorate.  This is the Directorate that caters for both mobile and immobile prison infrastructure.  It is divided into two broad sections viz: the Works and the Logistic sections.  The Works section has the responsibility of articulating collating, planning, implementing, supervising / monitoring the construction of prison projects.  As prison is mainly about buildings and walls, this section undertakes the construction/supervision of prison cells/walls, barracks and office as well as hospital buildings construction.  This is mainly done by the Project unit.  The maintenance unit of the section undertakes the maintenance of prison infrastructures like offices, prison walls, cells, barracks etc.  The nature of the work done under this ambit must of necessity mean that a full complement of experts in building technology must be the staff of this section.



The other section in the Directorate is the Logistics section.  This is the section that is charged with the responsibility of maintaining the fleet of prison vehicles and plants.  This means that this section is responsible for the maintenance of all departmental vehicles including farm machineries, plants and escort duty fleet.  This naturally means that we should have in this section professionals in the motoring industry and mechanical engineering occupying strategic positions in the sections to ensure the constant oiling of the wheels of prison plants and vehicles.
