Female Inmate, Okike Chinyere Bags Best Graduating Student Award From NOUN

A female inmate of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Lagos State Command, Okike Chinyere, has emerged as the best graduating student of the Peace and Conflict Resolution department, National Open University (NOUN).

She bagged a second-class upper degree in the course, according to a statement by the correctional service.

Aside from her, a male inmate, Alegbe Afolabi, was awarded an MSc in Peace and Conflict Resolution.

In his vote of thanks, one of the graduating inmates, Nweke Chibueze, thanked the Controller General, Haliru Nababa, and the Vice-Chancellor of NOUN for the opportunity. He, however, pleaded for clemency for the graduating students so they can be freed to give their quota to the country’s development.

While speaking during the presentation of the Bachelor of Science certificate to eight graduands from the Lagos Command, the state Controller of Correctional Service, Adewale Francis Adebisi, urged them to imbibe the virtues of education.

According to him, incarceration should not stop them from dreaming, telling them to use the “opportunity available while in detention to better their lives so that when they are released, they can contribute positively to the society”.
