Obiano asks prisoners to vote for Soludo as he promises amnesty to them

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has promised to grant amnesty to deserving inmates in the Correctional Centers in the state through the recommendation of the Controller.

He made the promise while attending the 68 birthday anniversary of Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Onitsha and Metropolitan of Onitsha Ecclesiastical Province His Grace, Valerian Maduka Okeke.

He charged the intimate to ensure they vote for Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo, the APGA candidate, in the forthcoming governorship election, who he said, will create more jobs that would meaningfully engage them and debar them from criminal activities.

The governor congratulated the Prelate on his birthday anniversary and wished him many more years of glorious service in God’s vineyard and service to humanity.

Earlier, Grace who celebrated the birthday at the Nigerian Correctional Service, Onitsha, with the prison inmates, challenged them not to lose hope or
be frustrated by the challenges of life.

He specifically stressed the need for them to be useful to themselves through the acquisition of education or vocational skills that would impact positively on their lives.
