Senate Approves Law school And NYSC For Open University Graduates

The Senate on Thursday approved the participation of graduates of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme and the Law School.

The amendment followed consideration of report of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND, chaired by Senator Jibrin Barau (APC, Kano) on the amendment of NOUN Act.

Barau said the amendment would address perception that the university is correspondence and seen as part time institution.

“These two concepts correspondence and part-time significantly affect the way the public views the programs run by the university.

“This has been the reason why law graduates of the school are not admitted into the Nigerian Law School, as well as the reason for the non inclusion of the graduates of the university into the NYSC,” he said.

Barau said the bill would allow those that pass out through the university to be included in the mandatory National Youth Service Corps scheme.

“The law graduates from this institution are not enrolled into the Nigerian Law School which is a set back to the graduates of law,” he said.

Barau further said that the amendment would allow for the inclusion of Information Communication Technology (ICT) as a means of giving out instructions and lectures.

“It will also allow for life-long learning. You can learn at every stage of your life,” he said.

Senate President Bukola Saraki said the amendment would go a long in enhancing the institution.
