President Bola Tinubu has directed the Federal Ministry of Education to include graduates of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.

Tinubu also resolved the longstanding admission of NOUN Law graduates into Nigeria Law School, for equal opportunities.

He made the disclosure during his presentation at the 13th convocation ceremony of NOUN on Saturday, at the university's Convocation Arena, Jabi, Abuja.


Tinubu, who was represented by the Deputy Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC), Noel Salihu, said with the changing demographics of our great nation, the government has recognised the importance of allowing NOUN graduates to participate in the NYSC scheme.

“The doors of the Law School are now open to the graduates, ensuring equal opportunities for all. Any remaining concerns or uncertainties should be promptly addressed by the Federal Ministry of Education.

“We will continue to do this in order to improve quality, access, and affordability.

“Government is, therefore, committed through the Federal Ministry of Education and the NUC to provide the enabling environment to ensure a good delivery of this mode of education in Nigeria,” he stated.

The president noted that the gathering was not just a celebration of the graduates' academic successes but also highlighted the crucial role that Open and Distance Education has in shaping the nation's educational framework.

He, therefore, affirmed his administration's commitment to enhancing ODL to expand access to higher education across the nation, emphasizing that the utilisation of ODL is essential for meeting the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
