Prof. Abdalla Adamu has said he would consolidate the good works of his predecessor

The new Vice-Chancellor of National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN, Prof. Abdalla Adamu has said he would consolidate the good works of his predecessor, Professor Ado Tenebe on core principles of affordability and flexibility of the school programmes and initiate the new policies that could add value to the development of the university. He made the promise in Lagos while addressing the newly admitted students into the open and distance learning university at the matriculation ceremony, which was held simultaneously at the university’s 68 study centres spread nationwide.
The vice-chancellor who attended the combined ceremony by Mushin and Ikeja study centres said his administration would purse quality assurance excellence using the National Universities Commission benchmark, offer quality academic, research and laboratory services that would be very competitive with those in the conventional universities. “NOUN will also introduce new innovations in the areas of distribution of course materials to students, school interaction and processing of examination results to forestall incidences of missing results, among others,” he added.
Also disclosing that the university would relocate its headquarters from Lagos to its permanent site in Abuja very soon, Prof. Adamu said the idea was to move the university beyond the next level. On the new students, he congratulated them for having confidence in the institution, despite what he called its many speculated challenges. He however warned them to shun behaviour capable of truncating their future and tarnishing the image of the institution but asked them to give their studies deserved attention..
