The Justice Development and Peace Commission (JDPC), a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) of the Catholic Archdiocese, has fed 929 inmates at the Jos custodial centre on Christmas day.

Presenting the cooked food and drinks to the inmates on Friday in Jos, Most Rev. Mathew Audu, the Catholic Archbishop of Jos, said the gesture was in the spirit of Christmas.

Represented by Rev. Fr. Noel Gotar, Audu said the gesture was also aimed at giving the prisoners a sense of belonging in the society.

“Christmas is a season of love and alms-giving, and these prisoners are part of the society, so we need to show them love and care.

“This is what prompted our decision to celebrate our Christmas with them; to wine and dine with them,” he said.

The Archbishop called on wealthy Nigerians to remember the needy, particularly in seasons of love like Christmas.

Audu urged the prisoners not to be disturbed by their present state, but use it as a springboard to attain greater heights in life.

He called on government and relevant authorities to make the prisons in the country more habitable for the inmates.
