The President Law Students Association of Nigeria (LAWSAN) of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Abuja chapter, Mr. Moses Danladi Dairo, has called on the Council of Legal Education (CLE) to consider law graduates of the (NOUN) for admission into the Bar part II of the Nigerian Law School.
Dairo, who spoke to City News in Abuja equally appealed to the various stakeholders such as the National Assembly, Body of Benchers, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), as well as President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the administrative conflict between the CLE and the NOUN and National Universities Commission (NUC) over the non-recognition of the NOUN law graduates for admission into the Bar part II of the Nigerian Law School.
He stated that if given the opportunity, the law graduates of NOUN will prove themselves at the Law School,  stressing that the “taste of the pudding is in the eating.”
The media, being the watchdog of the society, according to him, should join “in this partnership and assist the LAWSAN of NOUN to disseminate our plight and get the authorities to our side”.
Dairo pointed out that the open university educational system has been embraced all over the world like in the United Kingdom, India, China, South Africa, and Australia, stating that Nigeria cannot shut itself out and refuse to be dynamic, especially in this era of change.
“Nigeria should not remain an isolated island in this emerging global best practice, especially given the resolve that with the Vision 2020 policy drive, all forms of illiteracy would be eliminated. Law programme certainly, should not be the prerogative of a few privileged.” he insisted.
