The Senate has passed an amendment to the law establishing the National Open University (NOUN), which will make graduates of the institution eligible for mobilisation by the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and to attend the Nigerian Law School.

The passage of the bill followed a clause-by-clause consideration of report of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund at the committee of whole at Thursday’s plenary.

Presenting the report, the committee Senator Barau Jibrin stated that the amendment to the National Open University of Nigeria Act was to bring the institution at par with the regular universities in the country.

He added that the objectives of the bill are to amend the existing legislation with a view to removing the perception of the public about the university.

The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, in his remarks commended those who worked on the bill, saying that ICT is important because it improves teaching for students.

The National Open University of Nigeria Bill Amendment Act, was now read for the third time and passed.‎
