68 Inmates Acquire Vocational Skills in Ogun Prison
The NPS Ogun State Command has graduated 68 inmates of Ibara Prison after several months of intensive training in dress making, hair dressing, barbing, welding, bead making, carpentry, soap making and shoe making.
The graduation ceremony was attended by dignitaries including family members and friends of the inmates. The Chief Judge of the state, Hon. Justice O O Olopade who was represented by Mrs Sofowora  commended the prison management under the present Controller General, Ja’afaru Ahmed for bringing back lost hope to the inmates and providing them with a life changing opportunity for descent living. She noted that with this orientation, cases of repeat offences by ex-convicts will drastically reduce and crime in the society brought to the barest minimum.
She appealed to well meaning Nigerians to support the worthy course through accepting ex-convicts and allowing them to practice these trades without stigmatising them.
Earlier in his welcome address, the CP of the state, Mr Abolade Victor represented by the officer in charge of the prison,  DCP Sunday Kolawole stated that the prison has an inmate population of  1016 out of which 562 are awaiting trial. This, he further stated means that only 454 inmates are ordinarily qualified for reformation and rehabilitation programmes being only the certified felons. He therefore appealed for speedy trial of cases pending before courts in order to determine status of inmates and place them in appropriate treatment programmes.
He also appreciated the selfless effort of the Prisons Rehabilitation and Law Abiding Organization International (PRALARG) a non government organization for partnering with the NPS to train the inmates.
The graduands were later presented with certificates by the National Agency for Mass Education  amidst cheers.
Old Abeokuta, Ibara Prison was established in 1901with an initial capacity for 510 inmates but presently houses 1016 inmates.

  1. I’ve been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts
    in this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site.
    Studying this information So i’m satisfied to exhibit that I have a very excellent uncanny feeling I
    discovered just what I needed. I such a lot indisputably
    will make sure to don?t overlook this site and provides it a look regularly.

  2. Real Madrid will head to Southern Spain to take on bottom Primera Division side
    Malaga at the Rosaleda.

    Things are looking very tough for the Boquerones as they
    are a massive 14 points from safety with seven games to go.

    Their last home tie against Villarreal ended in victory but considering the opposition they are up against, Jose Gonzalez’s men are clear underdogs with Bet9ja at odds of (9.40).

    Los Blancos were given a huge scare in the Champions League quarterfinals in midweek when Juventus scored three goals at
    the Bernabeu to level the tie.

    However, Cristiano’s Ronaldo’s last minute penalty was
    enough to send them through to the semis where they take on Bayern Munich.

    Zinedine Zidane’s men should have no trouble displacing Malaga and are favourites at odds of (1.32).

    A draw at the end of 90 minutes is offered at
    (5.50) with the same betting firm.

    Real have won 24 of their last 33 league meetings with Malaga,
    losing just once. Backing the Spanish capital club to avoid defeat
    with two or more goals attached is priced at (1.17).

    With Gonzalez’s side tasting victory in only one of their last 16 league games this term, victory is pointing
    towards the side of Zidane’s men.

    The men in white winning to nil is valued at (2.25) while it’s (1.44) for a win with more than two
    goals at the Rosaleda.

    Madrid have scored in each of their last 19 top-flight visits to Andalusia (52 goals at an average of 2.7 goals per game).
    They are favoured to score the opening goal of the game at odds of (1.28).
