Obasanjo officially resumes work at NOUN


Former president, Olusegun Obasanjo on Thursday official started work as a facilitator and academic counsel at the National Open University (NOUN).

He resumed at the university’s study centre in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Obasanjo met with two final-year students of Christian Theology, Elijah Egehedi-Oke and Toriola Abigael, assigned to him for supervision.

The former president recently bagged a PhD on Christian Theology from the tertiary institution, making him the first PhD holder from the university.

Obasanjo established NOUN during his tenure. It is a Federal Open and Distance Learning (ODL) institution, the first of its kind in the West African sub-region.

On Monday, Director of the Abeokuta study centre, Prof. Ibrahim Salawu, announced the office allocation to Obasanjo.

He said it became necessary following his appointment as a facilitator in January.

Salawu, who led Obasanjo and other members of staff on a familiarization tour of the centre, said “I am very pleased to have a former President of Nigeria as a colleague in the academia.”
