All i know is that it is a 'NOUN'
Re: What You Don't Know About National Open University Of Nigeria (noun) by Nobody: 8:20pm On Nov 28, 2014
But the council of Legal education expressly and specifically stated that noun is not accredited for law because it is a part time school and law can't be studied part time, although the school is a good one.
