National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) can now participate in the one year mandatory National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) scheme as President Muhammad Buhari assents to the National Open University Amendment Act 2018.
According to Channels News, the Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang disclosed this to men of the press on Friday in Abuja.
“President Buhari has also assented to National Open University Amendment Act, which allows NOUN to operate as all other universities, having the same power and functions and the same administrative structures,” he stated.
Before the presidential assent, graduates of NOUN have decried the discrimination to participate in the one year compulsory youth scheme, NYSC.
