Thirty-five inmates of the Ibara and Oba custodial centres of the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCoS) have been matriculated for the National Certificate of Education (NCE) by the Yewa Central College of Education (YCCE), Abeokuta.

Speaking at the matriculation, the Provost of the college, Dr Mrs Mary Oriyomi Bamgbose, commended NCoS for assisting the inmates to fulfill their dreams.

She urged the inmates to be ready to make positive contributions to society and the college through their conduct, saying that over 100 students had graduated from the Ibara Custodial Centre campus, adding that some of them were now students of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

In his remarks, the officer in charge of the Ibara Custodial Centre, James Ogunyomode, who spoke through ACC Taiwo Oriyemi, commended the Controller General of NCoS, Haliru Nababa, for setting the laudable pace.

He maintained that acquiring Western education would rehabilitate the inmates and make them independent and useful to themselves and society when they regained freedom.
