National Youth Council visits Kafanchan prison, urges inmates to become good citizens after jail term
Inmates of Kafanchan Prison have been urged to see their imprisonment terms as part of efforts to make them better persons and help them integrate with the larger society upon their release.
The call was contained by the Coordinator of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Jema’a Local Government chapter, Comrade Solomon Samuel, when he led other members of the Council on a visit to the Nigeria Correctional Service (prison), Kafanchan.
While encouraging the inmates, Comrade Samuel said they should accept their prison terms in good faith, noting that some world leaders emerged from prison to international prominence.
He assured that as youths and the most productive members of the nation, the Council would identify with them in the conduct of its programmes and keep them abreast of developments, after which he presented items to them.
In a remark after receiving the items, the Officer In-Charge of the Kafanchan Prison, Chief Superintendent of Prison Mathias Dzuzu, appreciated the National Youth Council of Nigeria for the gesture, noting that it would go a long way to address a pressing need of the inmates.
The Council also visited the Pediatric Ward of Patrick Ibrahim Yakowa Memorial Hospital, Kafanchan, where they presented items.
