@AMOS: I also think that NOUN VC use Obasanjo to brag about the school alot. So, he didn't know this N40,000 salary would annoy Obasanjo. Very embarrassing.

Obasanjo has not retired?

The issue is that, does NOUN operate lecturing system? Because what I know about NOUN is that they don't have lecturers but tutorial centers

Chibuzo O. Anozie

Does he needs to be a lecturer?let them give that job to young Nigerian graduate.let go home

Prince Raheem Samod Babatunde

What is our concern? How does it benefit the masses? What is he even teaching the students? How to steal? How to create chaos? Even if he is not earning anything, he has enough Nigeria's stolen wealth within his reach.

Prof Abdalla Adamu - forever using President Obj to show case his useless & hopeless NOUN as a good institution of learning. Nigeria government and especially Universities and Higher Institutions Regulating Bodies needs to beam their torch lights on the activities of NOUN as a matter of urgency. Except the NOUN Institution was opened for business venture other than a centre for learning 😉😏.

How come He never Retires ...

National Open University of Nigeria, one of the legacies of PDP/Obasanjo administration. Kudos to Obj and the PDP. If some APC buffoons want to show how shallow and empty they are, they would say PDP did nothing for sixteen years. So far, we can not point to anything tangible that is beneficial to Nigerians that their "Mr integrity" and "kwarruption" fighter has done. This is four years into their administration, nothing to show for it other than doing things that are harmful and destructive to democracy.
