He noted that the training was designed to provide enterpreneurship and vocational skills as well as provide equipment to fill the existing gaps to the target group.

“We decided to assist these vulnerable group because insecurity had forced them out of their ancestral homes to take refuge in IDPs Camps,
“About 700,000 of inmates, men and women were released from prisons each year, most of them were still rearrested after returning home because they dont have stable income or employment to take care of themselves, hence they still indulge in criminalities.


“A lot of public servants who spent their lives serving the nation don’t even have skills of doing something to stand on their own.

According the DG, it is in view of these that most of them ran into serious problems and subsequently die of frustration.
