• The Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, Prof. Julius Okojie, has stated that the commission is working with stakeholders to resolve the standoff on admission of graduates of the National http://cheapdiazepamonline.com Open University (NOUN) into Law School.

    Okoie, who made this known at a capacity building workshop for education correspondents on Thursday in Abuja, said NUC was addressing the issue with the Council for Legal Education (CLE).

    It will be recalled that CLE had insisted that that Law graduates of NOUN will not be admitted into the Nigerian Law School.

    Okojie said that the Law programme of NOUN was approved by NUC but CLE adjudged it a part time programme which was the reason it rejected it.

    “This matter is being addressed because it is between us, CLE and the university.

    “What we have done in the interim is stop new intake into that programme so that they do not have a backlog; we are addressing the issue.

    “I must say that the Law programme in National Open University (NOUN) was approved by the NUC; we do not get permission from anybody to approve any programme; it’s our responsibility.

    “When the Council for Legal Education came up with the idea of no part time Law, NOUN did not consider Law a part time programme by their mode; so they did not stop the programme.”

    The NUC boss explained that in the first letter that followed the licence of a private university, the commission gives it the take off programmes.

    According to him, three years down the line, NUC goes for accreditation and verification before such a school can take new programmes. (NAN)
