Prof. Abdalla Uba Adamu, Vice Chancellor, National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), yesterday made it known that his institution remained the best in terms of human capital development in the country.

He revealed that the institution currently has about four hundred and thirty-nine inmates as students in its study centres spread across the country.

The Vice Chancellor disclosed in Abuja during a National Advocacy Program on Open and Distance Learning.

Adamu, who stated that the university offers free education to indigent but brilliant students and prison inmates, said NOUN currently boasts of over 500,000 students studying various programs that are approved by relevant authorities in the country.

Adamu also said that the recent convocation of the university where over 22,000 students graduated is an eloquent testimony of NOUN’s enormous contribution to human capital development in Nigeria.
