FIFTEEN inmates of the Ba Correctional Centre graduated from the Seeds of Success program at Ba on Friday.

Chief guest Ba Police Station Officer-In-Charge Inspector Suliasi Ratu said through Seeds of Success, inmates learned to use their time wisely, budget well, make wise decisions and more so put these into practice once they left prison.

He said inmates should make wise decisions all the time.

Insp Ratu said when people do not make wise and right decisions, they would end up in Prison.

"You have to make right decisions in your life. Think about your family before you commit any criminal activities. Spend more time with your family," he said.

"Programs such as Seeds of Success will enable you to learn how to live in a most disciplined way," he said.

"Since you are incarcerated here at the corrections centre, you are brought here to be disciplined, taught to be honest, faithful and be a good character," he said.

Insp Ratu said when inmates are indisciplined they are brought to corrections centres to be disciplined so that they can become good citizens upon release.
