She told them that they are not forgotten and that they must never despair in the love and forgiveness of God.
Ahmed urge the inmates to raise their hopes and be better citizens when they get back to the society.
According to her, they must have a rethink, as the drama and songs presentation by the inmate, showed that they have talents and can contribute positively to society.
She said people must appreciate freedom and told the prisoners to see it as a phase they will overcome in life.
In his welcome address, the Comptroller of Prisons, at Mandala and Oke-Kura prisons, CP Francis Adebisi, said this is novel for a Governor’s wife to celebrate Valentine with inmates.
He commended Ahmed for her thoughtfulness and love she showed the inmates.

In their appreciation remarks, the inmates represented by Ibrahim Ali-Jos thanked the governor’s wife for the visit and pledged that they will change their ways for the betterment of the country.
ROYAL NEWS gathered that Mrs Ahmed distributed foodstuffs such as bags of rice, garri, corn, cooking oil and toiletories and
