NOUN Waives Fees For Prison Inmates

The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has granted a 100 per cent waiver to prison inmates desiring education across the country.

The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Abdalla Uba Adamu, who revealed this in Abuja while hosting the Vice Chancellor of the Nigerian Turkish Nile University, Prof. Huseyin Sert, stated that the waiver, which before now was pegged at 50 per cent, would enable the inmates have unfettered access to quality education and also encourage others to take advantage of this initiative to acquire education.

Adamu, who cited lack of meaningful social support system for inmates to acquire education in the country, said, “Having suffered abandonment by relatives, emotional and physical confinement, prison inmates would see such gesture from NOUN as a measure meant to reduce the burden on them and to provide the platform to improve and make themselves better citizens.”
