NIGERIAN PRISONS: 13 Inmates Matriculate In Ogun
13 prison inmates of the Ibara Prison in Ogun State, have not allowed the walls of prison to prevent them from achieving their dreams.
They were on Friday matriculated at the National Open University of Nigeria for six degree programmes.
Dressed in academic gowns, they took the oath of good behaviour before the Director of the Abeokuta Study Centre of NOUN, Prof. Olatunde Salau, Controller of Prisons, Ogun State Command, Abolade Benson, and the officer-in-charge, Ibara Prison, Sunday Kolawole.
Salau, who represented the Vice-Chancellor of NOUN, Prof. Abdalla Adamu, said the mandate of the institution is to make education accessible to all local council areas.
He said, “There is hope for you. Education is the bedrock of whatever you want to do in life. With good education, you can achieve your dreams.”
On his part, Benson noted that education is part of the reformation policy of the current Controller-General of Prisons, J’afaru Ahmed.
He said Ahmed had sent books to prisons across the country so that the inmates could be enlightened and hopefully reformed.
