Adeleke, who is the father of the musical star, Davido said this on Friday evening when his foundation visited Ile Ife Prison to donate 300 mattresses and the same number of pillows to the inmates and to offset the medical bills of the sick ones among them.
The Chief Executive Officer, Dr Samuel Oyalabu, who said this on behalf of the chairman said this would reduce the propensity for crimes among ex-convicts, who he said always found it difficult to be accepted back into the society after their jail terms.
He said, “The foundation is not just here to donate items to the inmates but it has concluded plans to secure jobs for some of the ex-convicts. This will make them contribute their own quotas to the development of the nation at large.
“Being engaged productively will also keep them busy and can lure them away from further engaging in crimes.”
According to him, the foundation is also planning to introduce computer training, carpentry, barring and other skills to the inmates of the prison and others.
