The Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria, His Royal Highness, Amb Lawrence Okolio, has urge the federal government and the general public to stop discrimination against graduates from the Institution.

He also wants graduating students of the university to be allowed to participate in the National Youth Service Corps and those who read law to attend the Nigerian Law School.

According to him, graduates from the Nigerian online universities are not given equal treatment like their counterparts from other schools.

Some of the graduating students and their alumni confirmed that their degrees are often discriminated against in the labour market, but expressed hope that the trend will change in the nearest future.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Vincent Tenebe, in his remarks asked for more funding for the university from the federal government.

The National Open University is a recent innovation by the National Universities Commission (NUC) that allows students to study and work at the same time.
