” The university in the last three years has continued to grow in leaps and bounds, maintaining e central credo in order to solve its problem.

“As a weapon of mass instruction, people are now accepting Open Distance Learning (ODL) as a way and system of self-training,” he said.

Adamu said that the Presidential Assent to the amendment of NOUN Bill would empower the institution to enter into negotiations with the authorities in charge of the Law School and National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

“NOUN together with 44 universities entered the open competition and its proposal on technologically enhanced learning was adjudged winner of the category.

” In addition, the center will offer six short courses in Leaders and project management, database management, learning technology and enterprise architecture.

“However, I also congratulate the students who with much dedication made it to this point, I challenge you to remain good ambassadors of the university, ” he said. (NAN)
