Former President of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria, Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo bagged a PhD in Christian Theology as he officially graduated from the National Open University Of Nigeria (NOUN).
He was among 14, 771 persons expected to receive honors at the 7th convocation of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN). President Muhammadu Buhari said that the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN, is the best and only solution to the challenges of admission into conventional universities in Nigeria at the seventh convocation ceremony of NOUN held at its headquarters in Abuja. “Open Distance Learning is the best alternative to the challenges of gaining admission into the universities in Nigeria. All the conventional universities cannot admit more than one-third of qualified candidates annually. But we are happy that, in line with global education, open distance learning, ODL, being run by NOUN will soon completely eradicate the challenges of admission into universities.”
