Vice Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Prof Uba Abdallah Adamu has revealed that a woman in Gulak IDP camp in Adamawa state successfully registered with the university and passed out with a 1st class degree in Islamic Studies.
Speaking to the press after a recent sensitisation workshop in Kano, the VC stated that the woman’s case spoke volumes on the advantages presented by the university because of its flexibility and capacity to provide the access and opportunity for students to study within their comfort and timing as opposed to the conventional universities.
“Let me say it loud and clear that the National Open University of Nigeria under my leadership will be gender bias towards women; in fact, I have just directed after the workshop in Kano that the Kano State Deputy Commander for Women and Special Duties, Hajiya Zahra’u Usman, should identify 5 women – married or single – to apply to our University and we are going to give them full sponsorship,” he said.
He explained that “even inmates in prisons could avail themselves with opportunities offered by the Open University to apply and further their education. We are also calling on nomadic Fulani to embrace our programme so that they can obtain a degree from our university without necessarily coming to classes on face to face basis as we have established several study centers in the country that can be used by even fishermen in the creeks and those that are old, who cannot go to conventional universities for a degree programme.”
Speaking further, Prof Adamu noted that he was extremely happy when Alhaji Ibrahim Sheme joined them as Director of Media and Publicity at the National Open University. Sheme is a former newspaper editor, a publisher, and a writer, film producer, director and a social commentator, he is therefore responsible for bringing MOPPAN to partner with NOUN and organise the sensitisation workshop.
He called on people of the North and others who feel educationally disadvantaged to take advantage of admission policies of the NOUN and enroll into the university in order to afford them the opportunity of meeting up with others.
