The Comptroller of the service in the state, Alhaji Auwalu Diso, made this known during the matriculation of NOUN students for the 2017/2018 session in Dutse Study Centre on Saturday.
Diso, who was represented by Superintendent of Prisons, Mr Saidu Kibiya, said that like other prisons across the federation, inmates in Jigawa should also be admitted by NOUN to study.
He explained that in view of the gesture, many inmates graduated with first Degrees, Masters and Ph.Ds in various fields.
He added that “I am happy to tell you that the gesture has changed the character and attitudes of many inmates.
“In fact, many inmates have been reformed and they have desisted from bad habits and are ready to become good citizens.
“I am, therefore, appealing to NOUN to consider our request so that the prisoners can be reintegrated into the society after their jail terms with some integrity.
