Jude Onwuzulike, a prisoner serving a life sentence at the Awka Custodial Center in Anambra State, earned a postgraduate degree from the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

He received a certificate on Friday after being deemed deserving in learning and conduct.

The graduate who was a prisoner earned a postgraduate degree in education.

Onwuzulike responded, thanking the Custodial Centre and NOUN for the chance with delight, according to Daily Trust.

“Before coming here, I had no idea such a thing existed. I believed that such things could only be found in developed nations. I only had one certificate when I first arrived, but now I have three, and I’m prepared to get one more before I go.

I want my fellow prisoners to view this as a stepping stone. It’s time to enrol; you can continue even if you’re released. You won’t ever regret it, he assured.

Dr. Scholastica Ezeribe, Director of NOUN, Awka Study Centre, expressed her joy at the inmate’s commitment to academics at the certificate giving.

Dr. Georgina Ogbonna, who spoke on behalf of Ezeribe, urged the other prisoners to use the government’s free opportunities to improve their circumstances before being released.
