Perception of Prison Staff on the Impact of a Rehabilitation Programme, Ilorin Prison, Nigeria

Kehinde Adekunle Aliyu, Jamaludin Mustaffa, Norruzeyati Che Mohd Nasir


Nigeria appears to have consistently seen certifiable wrongdoing. Wrongdoing continues to grow and correctional facilities continue to be full. This paper argues that coordinating is a basic and helpful instrument for empowering prison inmates through attitudinal and behavioral changes which are purposefully and compactly coordinated to lower wrongdoing and reduce recidivism in Nigeria. The paper also hopes to review the present position of the master backers and Counselling Association of Nigeria as a body in surmounting the obstacles faced by the correctional facility prisoners through various approaches to coordinating. Thus, there is a need to empower the correctional facility prisoners through valuable direction, informational encouragement, controlling, recuperation, and reintegration for a beneficial life subsequent to serving their term in the prison.
Keywords: rehabilitation facility, prisoner, empowerment, coordinating, reintegration.
