The NGO fed the inmates before, during and after Eid-El-Kabir festival.
The National Ishaat Publications and Media Relations Secretary, Mr Qasim Akinreti represented the organization.
Akinreti said the inmates were happy for seeing the presence of the NGO impact in their lives, “indeed it was a great relief for the Badagry prison inmates as we fed hundreds of them”.
He added that “the inmates were grateful with the NGO gesture for spending time with them aside from the feeding program.
Akinreti then implored government at all levels to look inward on how to better the life of prison inmates across the Nation,”life of inmates doesn’t end in prison, we implore our governments to better the facilities of the prisons nationwide”.
