Institution hopeful on getting NASS help on education for women, girls
The support from the National Assembly is to ensure education is provided to women and girls who have been segregated due to cultural practices in the northern part of Nigeria.
Adamu said this during a courtesy visit to Senator Barau Jibrin, who represents Kano North Senatorial Zone, at the National Assembly Complex in Abuja.
According to Leadership, the university VC explained that lack of education has deprived women in the northern region of Nigeria from participating in nation building.
Adamu appealed to members of the National Assembly to actively promote Open and Distance Learning in their constituents.
According to him, it will help get people to acquire education in the deep roots of some northern communities.
This was met with optimism by Senator Barau Jibrin, who expressed his commitment in ensuring that the goal of the National Open University is achieved.
