NOUN Graduate Can Not Go for NYSC- Read Why

This will be a huge blow to all graduate of the
National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) as
report emanating from the institution has it that all
graduate of the institution are not eligible to
participate in the National Youth Service programme
Provost of Michael Otedola College of Primary
Education, Epe, Lagos State and former Dean of the
School of Arts and Social Sciences at the National
Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Professor Olu
Akeusola, made this know to news men.

This came even as both the students and the
management of NOUN have been making a case for
the inclusion of NOUN graduates who are below 30
years of age in the scheme.

He said: “You see, we have the
tendency of misinterpreting concepts. NOUN isn’t meant for regular students. It is not meant for anybody that has just finished
his secondary education.”

NOUN is a flexible programme meant for adults –
meant for the working class. It is for people who
have sufficient experience, but want academic
knowledge and certificates to back up what they
are doing.”

Akeusola noted that the manner of instruction at
NOUN was part-time and it was not different from
other part-time or correspondence programmes,
whose graduates were not eligible for NYSC.

“NOUN got it wrong when they started admitting
students that are JAMB drop-outs—people who are
unable to go to conventional universities through
JAMB; and then also fresh secondary school
graduates. Automatically, they would be agitating
that they want to serve, after all, they are graduates.

But the question you should ask is: If we are talking
about NOUN as flexible, what about graduates from
sandwich programmes? Are they serving? So, what
makes NOUN different from sandwich? The only
difference is that sandwich is done only during the
holidays and it is like part-time. NOUN is flexible,
but then, they both don’t receive lectures everyday.

They both don’t do face-to-face lectures,” he said.
