GOODNEWS: Senate Approves NYSC Programme For NOUN

share on:

The management of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has finally gotten the approval from senate for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) for all her students to participate in the NYSC programme.

It would be recalled, Graduates of the NOUN were months ago assured that they would soon be allowed to participate in the NYSC and the Nigerian Law School Programme.

The Director, Ilorin Study Centre of NOUN, Michael Abikoye, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin.

Mr. Abikoye, who was NOUN first Acting Registrar, attributed the exclusion of NOUN graduates from the scheme and law school to public misunderstanding of the difference between Open and Distance Learning (ODL) and part time studies.

He expressed optimism that with the ongoing talk between the management of the Open University and the relevant stakeholders, NOUN students would be absorbed into the scheme.
