Hope has been rekindled for graduates of NOUN who hope to attend the Nigerian Law School and participate in the NYSC scheme as OBJ backs their cause.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is behind moves by the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) to ensure that its graduates are allowed to participate in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and enlist in the Nigerian Law School.
This much was revealed by the Vice Chancellor of NOUN, Prof. Ado Tenebe who assured law graduates of the institution that they may soon gain admission into the Nigerian Law School while other graduates within the age bracket for participation in the NYSC scheme will soon be allowed to participate.
He said the process is being facilitated through influential Nigerians like Obasanjo who believe in the vision and mission of the institution as a full-fledged university.
"We are at an advanced stage, because eminent Nigerians like the former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who is also one of our students, and respected citizen of this country have taken it upon themselves to help us contact the authorities to allow our graduates go through the Law School and participate in the bar," Tenebe said.
It will be recalled that Student Pulse published a special report on the 7th of January about the NOUN management's failing efforts towards ensuring that its graduates participate in the NYSC scheme.
