The Law Graduates of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), have requested for compensatory quota for admission to the Nigerian Law School.
The Law Graduates also requested from the institution a substitution for the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) letters.
According to NAN, this was made known in a statement signed by Carl Umegboro, chairman and Ado Garba, assistant secretary, NOUN Law graduates in Abuja.
“Following the categorization, the graduates have been facing extreme discrimination in the labor market, as most employers rebuff their applications over the clause in the NYSC letter.
“However, these categories of graduate, Open and Distance Learning have been excluded from participating in the NYSC by the Federal Government with effect from 2001.
“We believe that considering the above issues will bring to perform the good job by the National Assembly and finally, President Mohammad Buhari by his assent to NOUN Amendment Act.
“We have unalloyed confidence that Mr. President will always give priority to issues that will improve the welfare of the vulnerable masses, as he evidently committed to since 2015,” it said.
