65 inmates to graduate from NOUN – VC

Professor Olufemi Peters, the vice-chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), says 65 prisoners from prisons will graduate at the institution’s next convocation.

He clarified that the 28,740 students who would graduate from the university include the 65 prisoners.

He explained that of the 65 prisoners, 58 are undergraduate students and seven are postgraduate students on Tuesday during the institution’s 12th pre-convocation briefing in Abuja.

He went on to say that the institution provides scholarships to the inmates as part of its social obligation, allowing them to study for free and giving them the chance to support themselves after serving their sentences.

Six pupils would receive First Class, 2,306 Second Class Upper, 11,075 Second Class Lower, and 5,558 Third Class, according to Professor Peters.

He explained, “The convocation will take place simultaneously at the 114 study centres of the varsity across the country to get students and parents to participate from the centres close to them.”

He disclosed that NOUN was working on a new proposal for the National Youths Service Corps with the hope that it would be more receptive and bring in some of the students into NYSC.
