This was revealed in Ganduje’s Sallah message, noting that the exercise “is conducted through the State Prerogative of Mercy Committee at the intervals of Sallah festivities.

Ganduje effected such releases during Sallah celebrations. He revealed that 90 inmates who were released today were among the released 3,898.

Ganduje assured that he would continue with the good work up to 2023 when his administration ends, adding that the exercise “is in compliance with President Muhammadu Buhari’s urge for decongestion of our correctional Centres.

“We will continue with this good initiative. And at the same time, I assure you that the process will continue even after I leave office. When my Deputy, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, who is the gubernatorial candidate of our great party, APC, wins come 2023,” he disclosed. 

In his remarks, the Controller of Kano Correctional Centres, Sulaiman Inuwa hailed Ganduje, revealing further that in his 30 years of work experience, he had never come across a governor who did something close to this.
