As part of ac­tiv­i­ties to mark Nige­ria’s 55th in­de­pen­dence an­niver­sary, Anam­bra State Gover­nor Wil­lie Obiano granted amnesty to 25 pris­on­ers.

In his mes­sage, Gover­nor Obiano said the ges­ture was to give hope to the hope­less.

He noted that Nige­ria has faced and tacked sev­eral chal­lenges since in­de­pen­dence, adding that it will con­tinue to stand strong.
