120 inmates of the Enugu Custodial Centre have gained admission into the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

The Controller-General of Corrections, Haliru Nababa addressed the new undergraduates during their matriculation.

He said the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) was focused on using education as a tool for the reformation and re-orientation of inmates.

“The NCoS has committed resources to ensure that inmates develop themselves while in custody to ensure public protection.

“I thank non-governmental organisations, faith-based organisations, and NOUN for their partnership over the years,’’ he said.

NOUN has a special study facility at the custodial centre.

Mr. Nababa was represented at the occasion by the Controller of Corrections in Enugu State, Nicholas Obiako.

In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor of NOUN, Prof. Olufemi Peters, asked the matriculating inmates to be of good behaviour.

He also presented first-degree certificates to 11 inmates who graduated from the centre.
