Responding, Onwuzulike, full of excitement, thanked the Custodial Centre and NOUN for the opportunity.

“To my fellow inmates, I want you to see here as a stepping stone. It’s time to enrol, you can continue even if you’re discharged. You’ll never regret it,” he said.

Speaking during the certificate presentation, Director of NOUN, Awka Study Centre, Dr Scholastica Ezeribe, expressed delight at the inmate’s enthusiasm towards academic.

Ezeribe, represented by Dr Georgina Ogbonna, charged other inmates to utilise the free opportunity provided by the government to better their lots ahead of their freedom.
