NOUN Shuts 5 Illegal Study Centres in Lagos

- Advertisment -

The National Open University of Nigeria said on Friday that it had identified and closed down five illegal study centres operating in different parts of Lagos.

The institution’s Director of Media and Information, Malam Ibrahim Sheme, explained that the decision was taken following reports from some concerned Nigerians.
He said that NOUN had to constitute a committee to monitor the activities of its study centres nationwide, in the interest of the general public.
He said, “We will continue to clamp down on the activities of such centres, whose main aim is to defraud Nigerians of their hard-earned income, given the economic situation in the country today.
“We just visited Lagos to monitor our centres and their operations and discovered five illegal study centres operating there.
“Anyone who wants to run a study centre must go through due process by officially registering with the institution, subject to meeting all the laid-down criteria.
“It is not by doing it illegally or by way of fraud. Those who discuss with NOUN for such purpose are given permission to do that, after meeting the prescribed requirements.”
Sheme said that all those found to have been operating the illegal study centres of the institution would be made to face legal action.
