Graduates of the National Open University of Nigeria can now participate in the compulsory one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and the Nigerian Law School.

This is following President Muhammadu Buhari’s assent to the National Open University Amendment Act, to permit the institution operate like every other university in the country.

This was made known by the Presidential Assistant on National Assembly (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, who made announcement while addressing State House reporters in Abuja.

He said, “President Buhari has also assented to National Open University Amendment Act, which allows the National Open University to operate as all other universities, having the same power and functions and the same administrative structures eliminating possible discrimination as some use to want to have on its products and programmes.

” It has also allowed the establishment of some centers to be called study centers and given conditions for the establishment of such study centers,” he said.

It would be recalled that the National Assembly had passed a bill for An Act to Amend the National Open University Act Cap N6 LFN 1983 (Amendment) Bill 2017’.
