The CCII President General who lauded the on going efforts of the federal government to improve on the welfare of prison inmates said “individuals and corporate bodies must support the government in its efforts to make inmates of Correctional centeres to fit into the society after serving their jail terms”

“The motive behind sending people to prison is to rehabilitate them in such a way that they will be able to contribute to the growth and progress of the society after regaining their freedom”

“As I legal practitioner,  I align with all stakeholders in the temple of justice to support the renewed efforts of the federal government at decongesting the various Correctional facilities in the country”

“I listened to the Minister of Interior recently on his plans to decongest the prisons. It is commendable. A situation where a facility that is originally meant for 1000 inmates is now occupied by 2000 or more is not acceptable”,he submitted
