Niger State Governor Grants Amnesty to 30 Inmates

In a move marking the first anniversary of his administration, Niger State Governor Mohammed Bago granted amnesty to 30 inmates at the state’s old and new correctional centers in Minna on Tuesday.

Governor Bago’s wife, Fatima Bago, also visited the Niger State Orphanage Home, reaffirming the government’s commitment to the well-being of the children there. Acting on behalf of the governor, Secretary to the State Government Abubakar Usman visited the correctional centers to announce the amnesty.

During the visit, Usman revealed that the governor had arranged for the payment of fines for the released inmates and provided malaria medications and food supplies, including rice, beans, and maize, to alleviate economic hardships faced by the inmates. The governor emphasized the importance of these visits and donations in helping inmates feel integrated into society. He urged the freed individuals to become positive representatives of the state and the nation.

“Thirty individuals have been selected for clemency, focusing on those with minor offenses whose fines will be paid,” Usman stated. He also noted that the governor had recently approved fine payments for 100 inmates, which had already been completed. The visit included the distribution of food, medicine, and other essential items.

The governor’s wife, during her visit to the orphanage, assured the children that the administration had significant plans for their future. She mentioned that policies and programs benefiting the children would be rolled out in the coming months.

“This is just the beginning. We have many plans for the children, and they will be part of our vision for a new Niger State. Better days are ahead,” she said. She also indicated that the Ministry of Women Affairs would collaborate with the orphanage management to repair its damaged facilities.
