Man in Abuja Prison Bags Second Class Upper From National Open Varsity

An inmate of the Nigerian Correctional Service in Kuje Custodial Centre, Mr Chinwendu Heart, graduated with a Second Class Upper degree in Theological Studies from the National Open University of Nigeria.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer, Federal Capital Territory Command, Mr Chukwuedo Humphrey, on Wednesday, in Abuja.

Humphrey quoted the Librarian, NOUN, Dr Angela Okpala, who presented the certificate on Tuesday as encouraging the graduate to be a good ambassador of the university as well as the correctional service.

Speaking, Mr Ibrahim Shehu, the officer in charge of Kuje Custodial Centre said that the inmate had shown an exemplary character over time.

“The inmate has always been diligent with his studies and also lived an exemplary life in custody,” he said.

Shehu enjoined other inmates to cease the opportunity of the free education from NOUN and improve themselves, adding that education was the bedrock of human development.

The graduand, Heart, expressed happiness, saying that he had come into the Kuje Custodial centre without a secondary school certificate.

Heart said that with the encouragement of the staff, he had now gotten a University degree and that he hoped to utilise the offer of NOUN and study to get a PhD.

He further encouraged other inmates to engage themselves in these regimes of reform in the custodial centre instead of being idle and giving in to social vices.
