Prof. Abdalla Uba Adamu, Vice Chancellor, National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for assenting to the amendment of the university’s Act, saying it has cleared all the misconceptions about the institution.
The Vice Chancellor disclosed this in Abuja over the weekend on the occasion of the university’s 8th convocation ceremony where the institution graduated over twenty thousand students.
“Prior to the assent there were misconceptions that the university offers part-time courses, or is a correspondence institution. This constituted a barrier to all our young graduates who are aged less than thirty and who are eager to serve their fatherland in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
“This concept also serves as a barrier to our law graduates who have undergone a course of instruction in our law degree and which was fully accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC) to get admitted into the Nigerian Law School where they can further trained as Barristers at Law,” Adamu stated.
