Coronavirus: NOUN suspends 9th convocation ceremony

The National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN, has announced the postponement of its 9th convocation ceremony indefinitely, over growing fear of the Coronavirus outbreak across the country.

A terse statement signed on Monday by the university’s Registrar, Felix Edoka, said the postponement became necessary in view of the “health dangers inherent in the gathering of a large number of people at this time”.

“The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) wishes to inform the general public, especially our over 25,000 graduating students, that the 9th Convocation Ceremonies, scheduled for March 20 and 21, 2020 have been postponed indefinitely.

“Council and Senate jointly took the decision in view of the health dangers inherent in the gathering of a large number of people at this time.

“The inconvenience caused our graduating students, family and friends is regretted,” the statement noted.
