Governor Chukwuma Soludo-led Anambra State Government has upheld and pledged the establishment of schools in correctional centres across the state.

The Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, made the pledge while playing host to the new head of Onitsha Correctional Center, Deputy Comptroller, Micheal Anugwa, who paid her a courtesy visit to the her office at the Jerome Udorji State Secretariate Complex, Awka, Anambra State capital.

According to her, establishing schools at the correctional centers is a wonderful initiative, which will give the inmates opportunities of living a better life when released.

She said the import of education in national development can never be over-emphasized, which, she said is the reason why Governor Soludo’s administration prioritizes and places more premium on education, as he has so far manifested in his giant feats in the educational sector.
