The Vice-Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria, Prof. Olufemi Peters, has said the welfare and satisfaction of students are of utmost priority to his administration.
He also announced that the institution has simplified registration through a ticketing system.
Due to the present challenges presented by a coronavirus, the VC disclosed that the registration was being simplified further, with a ticketing system developed to attend to students’ requests for information complaints.
A statement issued by NOUN Director (Media and Publicity), Ibrahim Sheme, said Peters stated this in Abuja during the 21st matriculation ceremony for the students of the institution held in Abuja.
The event was witnessed through a virtual link across the 103 study centres of the University in the country in compliance with the COVID-19 protocol.
A total of 14,953 fresh students were sworn in for the university’s 2020/2021 second semester session.
The VC told the new students, “It is my delight and responsibility to assure you and the entire management and NOUN community, that I am committed to making your stay in NOUN seamless, peaceful and safe.
