According to him the drive will help keep the inmates constructively engaged, inspire hope in them, help to develop positive life-changing attitudes and hone their life-effectiveness skills. In his words, “the programme will introduce inmates to new value systems and role models that would make them more mentally ready and less likely to become reoffenders after serving their terms.”

In his response, the Controller-General (CG), Nigerian Correctional Services (NCoS) appreciated NCC’s efforts at encouraging creativity, describing the Commission as an indispensable gem in the country’s economic growth.
