The drive will help keep the inmates constructively engaged, inspire hope in them, help to develop positive life-changing attitudes and hone their life-effectiveness skills
As reported by Nigeria’s The Sun:
“In line with its statutory mandate and the renewed drive to encourage the use of copyright to grow the creative sector, the Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC) will partner with relevant agencies, associations and industry practitioners to promote creativity in correctional centres across the country.
“Director-General of the Commission, Dr. John O. Asein explained that the Commission had concluded plans to collaborate with the Nigerian Publishers Association (NPA), Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA), Performing Musicians Employers Association of Nigeria (PMAN) and the Society of Nigerian Artists (SNA) to facilitate the reformation, rehabilitation and reintegration of inmates through creative activities.
“The drive will help keep the inmates constructively engaged, inspire hope in them, help to develop positive life-changing attitudes and hone their life-effectiveness skills (introducing) inmates to new value systems and role models that would make them more mentally ready and less likely to become reoffenders after serving their terms.”
