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.
