NOUN Waives Tuition fees for Prisoners

The National Open University (NOUN) has waived tuition fee for inmates of prisons in Nigeria. The Vice-Chancellor of NOUN Professor Abdalla Uba Adamu said the decision to waive the tuition fees for the prisoners was the university's quest to fulfil its corporate social responsibility as well as a shortage of sponsorship offers for inmates. Professor Adamu spoke at a formal presentation of certificate to Mr Albert Emmanuel Ajogbor, a NOUN student at the Maximum Security Prison, Kirikiri, in Lagos, who earned a B.A. (Hons) in Christian Theology. Adamu pointed out that the decision was in line with the university's vision of providing highly accessible and enhanced education anchored by social justice, equity, equality and national cohesion through comprehensive reach that transcends all barriers.
