Two (2) inmates of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCoS) studying with the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Corrections’ Special Study Centre in Medium Security Custodial Centre, Kaduna, have graduated with degree certificates.
In a congratulatory message to the graduands, the Assistant Controller General of Corrections, Umar Audu, on behalf of the Controller General of Corrections, congratulated the graduands and charged them to see the educational advancement as a stepping stone to a brighter future.
He urged them to shun anti-social behaviours capable of tainting the new course of positive life they have chosen for themselves and be good ambassadors of both the NCoS and NOUN.
The graduands, Umolu Emmanuel Onyebuchi, who studied BSc Communication Technology and Alexander Okpe, who studied BA Christian Theology, thanked the management of NCoS and NOUN for their support and encouragement.
Since the inception of the collaboration between the NCoS and NOUN, numerous inmates have graduated in different fields of study such as Conflict and Peace Resolution, Political Science, Communication Technology, Sociology, Guidance and Counselling, among others.
