The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has approved the freedom of ninety prison inmates across correctional centres in the state.

The governor has also made provisions to register the former prisoners in skills acquisition programmes in the state, Naija News understands.

Governor Ganduje assured that his government will free more inmates in the next 70 days during Eid el-Kabir celebration.

He revealed this when he paid a Sallah visit to the Goron Dutse Correctional Centre, Kano, on Monday, alongside some members of the State Executive Council (SEC), party leaders and other top government dignitaries, Naija News understands.

The governor, according to a statement issued by his spokesman, Abba Anwar, noted that some of the inmates were pardoned because of ill health, some because of age, some because of their inability to pay for fines placed on them.

This is as he noted that some of them were even on death row.

Though many of you were given training in one skill or the other, those of you who need further training should immediately go and register with the government for another round of skills acquisition,” the statement noted.

The governor reminded them that the pardon was not only meant to decongest the correctional centres but to also give them another chance to be of good character.
