Mrs. Olutomi Olatoye, the Founder of  Hope Alive  Training  Academy and an Agricultural Expert, has emphasized the need for the setting up of farms at correctional centres all over the country.




This was made known while featuring as a guest speaker during this year’s 2022 annual conference of the Prison and Hospital  Ministry of the Redeemed  Christian  Church of  God with the theme:’’Fresh Air For  Freedom, held at the Redemption  Camp, off Lagos/Ibadan  Express Way, Ogun State.



Mrs. Olatoye, who is also the founder of the Centre for Urban  Agricultural Development noted that more than ever before, Nigerians including prison inmates must begin to plant something to prevent hunger.




Listing the benefits of the correctional farm centres, she said it would be a way of raising farmers behind bars, and helping inmates acquire a skill for life after prison.




According to her,  a work and earn model could even be developed for the inmates through  the correctional farms, adding that, inmates would learn handiwork while raising their food and herbs on the farms, she emphasized.




Olatoye also counseled members of the prison and hospital ministry to also grow their own food and herbs in their backyards to reduce the amount of money families spend on foodstuffs.
