Former President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday called on the Federal Government to resolve the issue of the non-acceptance of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) law graduates into the Law School. But Chief Obasanjo said the decision to deny them admission into Law School was a serious matter that needed to be tackled with all seriousness.
NOUN suspended admission into its law programme following a decision by the Council of Legal Education (CLE) to stop law graduates from NOUN from being admitted into the Law School.
The former President, who last year graduated with a degree in Theology from NOUN, said: “When they told me about law people, I said who are the early lawyers? They sat at home and read and they ate their dinner… And then they qualified. We know we were there with most of them in the 1950s.”
According to a statement by the institution’s Head of Communication, Ibrahim Sheme, in Abuja yesterday, the former President spoke when the Vice-chancellor of NOUN, Prof. Abdalla Uba Adamu, visited him at his house in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
