Five of them bagged their Master’s degrees, 17 bagged their first degrees, and one got a Post-Graduate Diploma.

The 23 are products of NOUN’s study centre at the custodial facility that completed their various courses within four or five years.

State Coordinator of NOUN, Nigerian Correctional Service, Jennifer Nwonyi, presented the degrees and diploma to the graduates at a virtual convocation held at the Enugu Custodial Centre.

She noted that the graduates had defied all odds to attain great heights.

“I am overwhelmed with joy that God granted these students the grace to successfully complete their studies to become graduates of NOUN.

“Thank God that these graduates overcame the psychological challenge of attending to the rigours of years of study while being held at the custodial centre.

“I say congratulations to our graduates and wish them great advancements as we have prepared them to face and overcome future challenges when they leave the custodial centre,’’ Nwonyi said.

Speaking at the ceremony, Sunday Oyakhire, Deputy Controller of Corrections in charge of Enugu Maximum Custodial Centre, thanked NOUN for organising the courses and for providing facilitators.
