The Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Enugu State, Miletus Eze, who disclosed this at the Enugu State Headquarters of the Nigerian Prisons Service, said the gesture was in line with the Ugwuanyi administration’s “Justice for all” policy. Eze explained that the governor was empowered by the country’s laws to grant amnesty to prisoners, and to also commute death sentences to life imprisonment. The commissioner added that it was the first time, since 1999, that prisoners would be granted amnesty in Enugu. He said, “The governor of Enugu State has performed his statutory duty by granting amnesty to some inmates of the Enugu Prisons. “Since 1999, this exercise has not been carried out in Enugu State, but because of the nature of the governor we have, he has decided to carry out this function.” Asked whether the exercise would henceforth be carried out regularly, Eze, who is also the chairman of the Enugu State Advisory Council on Prerogative of Mercy, replied in the affirmative, saying the governor would grant amnesty to prisoners “from time to time.” He added, “If you recommend daily to him, he has the discretion to decide whether to exercise it or not, but I can assure you that with the type of disposition he has, it will be done from time to time.”]]>
