In celebration of the 2021 Eid-El Fitr, the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, approved and granted the release of 123 prison inmates in the state.
According to the Governor, the beneficiaries were selected based on the gravity of their offences and signs of genuine reformation while in prison. He also stated that the decision to visit the prison was to show the inmates that the Kano State Government was aware of their existence and that they were also regarded as citizens of the state.
It was also in a bid to complement the Federal Government’s efforts to further reduce congestion in the nation’s prisons.
Ganduje was present during the release of the inmates from Goron Dutse Prison yesterday (13th May).
The ex-inmates were advised to change their attitudes and pray for peace and stability in Nigeria.
