Francis EnoboreThe National Open University of Nigeria says inmates of the Nigerian Correctional Service are among its best-performing students.

This was as the institution advocated more opportunities and flexible academic programmes for prison inmates and officials of NCOS.

The Coordinator of the NCoS-NOUN Special Study Centre, Controller of Corrections, Francis Enobore, said these, according to a statement on Wednesday by the NCoS spokesperson, Abubakar Umar.

The statement quoted Enobore as saying “Inmates in correctional facilities have distinguished themselves as some of them are among the best-performing students in the university.

Enobore, while enumerating new admission offers available at NOUN, said holders of National Diploma with lower credit could get admission to study any course of their choice in the institution.

He added that anyone with Higher National Diploma would be admitted to 300 level.
