The Federal Government pledged on Wednesday to make education more accessible to Nigerians.

The Minister of State for Education, Dr Yusuf Sununu, pledged at the inauguration of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Surulere Campus, Ojuelegba, Lagos.

Sununu described the opening of the campus, aimed at enhancing access to education for all, as being in line with the eight-point agenda of President Bola Tinubu and urged the university’s management and prospective students to utilise the facilities provided well.

“This centre has added slots and access to education is going to be established because you can operate from your neighbourhood, particularly for students who want to pursue their academic career. As the Federal Ministry of Education, we want to ensure that we are in full compliance with President Tinubu’s eight-point agenda,” he said.

The minister said the government would ensure that its certificate is one to be proud of and reckoned with.

Similarly, Mr Tajudeen Abbas, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, said that the programmes offered at the university would equip youth and adult learners with the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in today’s competitive environment.
