“They told us that we are not going for the National Youth Service. I just want them to do something very fast, because I believe going for service is an opportunity for one to get a job fast.
“Also, it will give us an opportunity to go to the different fields or those places where we are supposed to work at least to get enlightened.“

Mrs Sarah Udoji, the mother of a 24-year-old graduate of Computer Communication, urged the Federal Government to review the NYSC policy to accommodate NOUN graduates.
She said, “I like the National Youth Service Scheme. So, I am appealing to the government to look into allowing graduates of the open university to go for NYSC because it will give their certificates relevance.“
The institution’s law graduates also appealed to the Council on Legal Education to allow them to enroll in the Nigerian Law School and to be called to the bar.
Mr Aturu Taiwo, a law graduate of the university, explained why it had become necessary for his colleagues to be called to the bar.
