NOUN Students Are Agitating for NYSC Mobilization

- No comments


The vice Chancellor prof Abdalla Adamu , NOUN staff ,management, students leader and stakeholder , Distinguished Members of the Press, Ladies and Gentlemen.

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppresor, it must be demanded by the oppressed Martin Luther King, jnr

This is call to the masses.  A call for justice. A call for our voice to be heard. A call for implementation of the national open university of Nigeria Act. 
This is a call to demand our rights. A call to stand for justice and fairness. A call to consolidate our future, our generation and our people. 

It is no more a news that the bill that allow National Open University of Nigeria students to participate in the ONE year NYSC scheme and also our law graduates to be admitted into Nigeria Law school has been signed since Dec 04 2018 more than 1 and half year ago. But it is so sadden that ever since this acts has been signed into law Nothing has been done to implement the Acts,  while Nigerian Constitutions make a provision that any law signed by the president must be implemented latest 6 months.

The National Open University of Nigeria is a Federal Open and Distance Learning Institution Accredited by NUC. The first of its kind in the West Africa sub-region. It is Nigeria's largest tertiary institution in terms of students population.

We pay heavily to afford National Open University terms and conditions as directed by NUC but we are deprive of our rights like other Accredited Tertiary  Institutions.

I have seen a Nigeria graduate from National Open University of Benin Republic serving in Nigeria,  even with International treatment.

I have also seen a Graduate of National Open University of Nigeria that was denied of an employment due to lack of NYSC discharge certificate.


1. We pledge to the Federal Government or order the Implementation of NOUN acts, which was signed into law on Dec 04 2018 to allow Graduates of National Open University of Nigeria to participate in the scheme and be admitted into Nigeria Law school respectively.

2. National Open University of Nigeria 2020 Graduates must be mobilized together with the 2020 Batch A.

3. We give federal government Seven (7) working days ultimatum to find solution to this.

Failure to Comply with this, we shall all match as the largest university in Nigeria in all the 36 States and make it known to the world that we have been treated like a third class citizens by our government and all the activities of the government will be disrupted through social media and peaceful solidarity protest.

We are not for war but for peace.

An injustice to one is an injustice to all. 


1. We are aware that NYSC Batch A time table is out and NOUN graduates must be mobilized alongside too.

2.  Dignitaries or personnel may plead for us to be patient and wait for Directive of the management. We know this tactics too well, we will never fail for this.

Enough is Enough

The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), on Saturday matriculated no fewer than 17,000 new students for the 2019 Academic Session.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Abdalla Adamu, disclosed this during the matriculation ceremony at the institution’s headquarters in Abuja.

Adamu who was represented by the Center Director, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Special Study Center, Prof. Ibikunle Tijani, urged the students to conduct themselves properly throughout their studies.

He said the exercise was part of the 18th matriculation ceremony which took place at the 78 study centres of NOUN across the country.

“NOUN is not a regular university, as a result, desist from all the anomalies, like cultism, sexual harassment by lecturers that exist in conventional universities.

“I want to meet you in the next four years, during your graduation, full of knowledge and ready to take on the world as a result of your studentship in NOUN.

“We have established a Directorate of Learning Content Management System charged with bridging the Gap between you and your lecturers wherever they may be.

“Initially what was missing is negotiation, we have made contact and with the amended act, negotiation with NYSC and Council on Legal Education will start soon,’’ he said.

He explained that since the last matriculation in 2018, the institution had put in place, a number of adequate measures that will ease learning in NOUN.

Adamu equally said that the institution had strengthened the students entrepreneurship training aimed at empowering students’ creativity and capabilities.

Speaking on behalf of other matriculated students, Miss Sintiki Mathey of Political Science Department, promised that they would work hard and obey the rules of the institution throughout their studies.

- 1 comment

THE National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has targeted to double its students’ enrollment from the current half a million across all departments by 2024.

The Chairman of Governing Council of the university, Prof Peter Okebukola, made this disclosure on Monday in Lagos while briefing newsmen on the development concerning the university as regards President Muhammadu Buhari’s assent to the 2018 NOUN Amendment Bill, which provides greater legitimacy to the university as a full-time open and distance learning institution.

According to him, the proposed one million enrollment is in accordance with and follow-up to the three-year ministerial strategic plan which started since 2016 to increase access of qualified Nigerians to university education.

Prof Okebukola, who is the former Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission(NUC), explained that NOUN with study centres across the country, was already repositioning itself to not only significantly improve the quality of learning delivery system such that its graduates becoming the best in at least five of its programmes in the Nigerian university system and employers’ delight by 2025, but also the best open and distance learning university in Africa five years after.

He noted that the university would roll out in the first quarter of 2019 unique delivery system to address remaining challenges faced by the students and was also at a close of hosting the African Centre of Excellence on Technology Enhanced Learning(ACETEL) that would be funded with between $4 million and $6 million by the World Bank in five years circle.

While also announcing that the council had approved the promotion of three academic staff to professorship cadre and five others to associate professorship, he charged them to see their elevation as a call for greater responsibilities

He, however, commended the Senate of the university and its leadership, Prof Abdalla Adamu, the vice-chancellor, who was also present at the briefing, saying the NOUN was experiencing appreciable development through their management.

President Muhammadu Buhari agrees to the National Open University Amendment Act 2018

The Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, disclosed this to State House correspondents on Friday in Abuja.

Students of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) can now heave a sigh of relief as President Muhammadu Buhari agrees to the National Open University Amendment Act 2018.

He said, “President Buhari has also assented to National Open University Amendment Act, which allows the National Open University to operate as all other universities, having the same power and functions and the same administrative structures.”

The NYSC has, however, been issuing ‘Letter of Exclusion from National Service’ to graduates of the institution.

Before the presidential assent, graduates of the institution have decried the alleged discrimination to participate in the one-year national youth scheme, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

The President’s assent to the National Open University Amendment Act 2018 has now addressed the issues raised by the students of the institution

While stakeholders in the education sector discuss the issue of participation in the scheme, NOUN graduates also lamented that they were not admitted into the Nigerian Law School.

This is just as the Act eliminates possible discrimination against programmes and products of the university.

“It has also allowed the establishment of some centers to be called study centers and given conditions for the establishment of such study centers,” Senator Enang revealed.
