Former president of Nigeria, Dr. Olusegun Obasanjo is now a bonafide staff of the National Open University of Nigeria, as he today inspected his office space at the Abeokuta Study Centre, in his capacity as a facilitator.
The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Abdalla Uba Adamu, had soon after the former president’s graduation with Ph.D. in January, appointed the former two-time president as a facilitator in the university.
Obasanjo, the first Ph.D. graduate of the university, received his certificate in theology during the 7th NOUN convocation ceremony earlier this year in Abuja.
The director of the centre, Prof. Ibrahim Salawu, who was on hand to show Dr. Obasanjo his office, said this became necessary following his appointment as a facilitator in the university.
Salawu, who led Obasanjo, in company of other members of staff on a familiarisation tour of the centre, said it was a pleasure having him around as a colleague in the academia.
Obasanjo expressed satisfaction at the office space allotted him and promised to work for the progress of the University.
