Emir urges regular visits to prison by philanthropist


The Emir of Bauchi Alhaji Rilwanu Suleman Adamu has called on philanthropists and non-governmental organizations in the state to pay regular visits to prisons in order to give support where necessary to the inmates.
The Emir made the plea while handing over payment receipts for the sum of N450, 000 donated by a Bauchi based Supermarket, Jifatu Stores for the release of some inmates at the Bauchi Central Prison.
Alhaji Rilwanu Adamu who was represented by the District Head of Jahun and Dankade of Bauchi, Alhaji Aminu Yakubu, commended the initiative of Jifatu Stores and called on other philanthropists in the state to emulate.
The Emir also advised the released inmates to consider their release as another opportunity to begin a new life that will benefit their immediate communities, the state and the nation in general.
The Assistant Controller of Prisons in Bauchi, Mr. Madu Gimba, has in a remark commended Jifatu Store for coming to the aid of the inmates whose fines; he noted, was meager but could not afford it.
Gimba explained that the money has facilitated the quick release of the inmates and called on them to be of good behavior after their release.
Earlier in his remark, the representative of Jifatu Stores Bauchi, Alhaji Musa Ahmed Jama’are, explained that the donation was part of their humanitarian services to the community.
Alhaji Musa Jama’are, who said the money is meant to secure the release of thirty inmates from the prison, pledged more support in the very near future.
Responding on behalf of the released inmates, Malam Isa Abdullahi thanked Jifatu Stores for the gesture and pledged to be ‘Changed’ people that would contribute meaningfully to the development of their respective areas.
