Kirikiri Inmate Enrolls For Phd In Criminology At NOUN by Nounitesportal(m): 7:09am On Jun 27, 2018
An inmate of the Kirikiri Maximum Prison, Lagos has enrolled for a doctorate degree (PhD) at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Prof. Abdalla Adamu NOUN’s Vice-Chancellor says.

Adamu disclosed this in his remarks at the opening ceremony of the 1st International Conference of Social Sciences –ICOSS’ 2018– held on at NOUN’s headquarters on Monday in Abuja.

The theme of 3-day conference is “Imaged or Imagined: Africa and the Contemporary World—Issues in Security, Governance, and Sustainable Development.’’

Adamu said that NOUN had transformed into a more credible institution than it was previously perceived.

“We emphasise quality assurance, due diligence, due process and most importantly, we emphasise academic excellence and leadership.

“We have over 420,000 students and about 135,000 about to take their examinations; last Saturday, we matriculated over 16,000 students.

“We are the only institution that provides opportunities for those who cannot afford education; we provide opportunities for education to prisoners free of charge.

“I am proud to announce that one of the inmates at Kirikiri prison has registered for Ph.D. in Criminology,’’ he said.

He said that NOUN’s aspiration to become the foremost university in Africa, I believe, could only be actualised through intellectually stimulating activities like ICOSS.

The vice-chancellor said that during academic conferences, scholars network to find solutions to issues that pose challenges to the world and express their understanding of the universe in which they belong.

Adamu noted that the theme of the conference was apt as it interrogated the claim that Africa was incapable of sustaining human flourishing.

In her message, Dr. Ganiyat Adesina-Uthman, Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences, NOUN, said that the ICOSS’ 2018 theme was timely as it came when the happenings in the continent were in front burner.

She said that the conference attracted delegates from Cameroun, France, Brunei, Darussalam, USA, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia.

“On behalf of our collaborators-Federal University, Dutse(FUD), Nile University, Abuja, Taraba State University, Jalingo, United States of America Embassy, we thank all the participants from over 50 institutions in Nigeria and abroad who have contributed over 200 abstracts to the discourse on African image.

“Your contributions to academic knowledge on Africa is crucial to shaping the future of our continent—a continent loaded with opportunities,’’ she said.

Prof. Rufai Alkali, Chairman, Conference Organising Committee, in a remark, said that the theme of the conference was premised on the need to bring scholars of international repute to brainstorm on how to solve Africa’s problems.

He said that the deliberations would open a new debate on Africa’s development.

On his part, Prof. Tahir Mamman, Vice-Chancellor, Baze University, Abuja, who was also the Chairman on the occasion, commended NOUN for hosting the international conference.

“What NOUN is doing is at the heart of what universities should do; to generate ideas that impact on society not just to graduate students.

“It is important to graduate people who will provide solutions to the problems of society, ‘’ he said.

The keynote titled “Saving Lake Chad and the Rejuvenation of Africa: Beyond the Imaginary’’ was delivered by Horace Campbell, Professor of African American Studies and Political Science.

cool

FTC, after how many years on nairaland.

If you put your mind at something and never relent, you gonna get it.

I dedicate this FTC to all final year folks of the faculty of education in Unilorin. Good luck in your CBT tests!! and to all Nigerians in diaspora, we were cheated yesterday but as they say there is light at the end of the tunnel. Our team is a young one and are destined for bigger things in the future.

Back to the news, NOUN has been a good and relevant initiative, affected lives positively and created an avenue for Nigerians to get a degree somewhat. I only hope recommendations from the discourses are implemented. Africa are good at drawing recommendations but never implementing them. The countries in the Lake Chad basin should tackle the growing ecological menace in the Lake Chad.

An inmate going for a PHD especially in criminology, is a great news. In Nigeria, we are used to inmates getting out and going back to crime. Well, if this inmate gets out, I hope he can live a fulfilled life, and contribute his quota to our great nation.

In other news, Buhari, must go back to Daura. It's a must win cause. We won't accept innocent Nigerians dying. Not anymore!!!

Don't mind them. Instead of them to train the inmate in skill acquisition so they can cater for themselves.

Does NOUN really offer free education or at least, subsidize tuition fee?

And that's not what criminology represents, they don't teach you how to catch criminals, but reasons people go into crime, in fact it makes a security personnel have soft spots for criminals .

haha, i actually understand that, i was looking at the humour within the report,....your explanation makes me think you're a criminologist or something close, psychologist, sociologist maybe ?..nice....that said, there have been instances where a criminal with a trained background in criminology have made it very hard for the law to get hold of them. for example, ted bundy the serial killer of the '70's in US was a lawyer and a psychologist, racked up a triple digit body count and took almost two years to track down....the detectives that finally got him admitted his background in psychology made him the most difficult to tie to his crimes....go figure....quick que : are you from owerri?

Yes I understand the humour in it , but most readers won't see it that way, as I discovered many people are intellectually lazy in making findings, instead they swallow everything they read on social media " hook line and sinkers" though I have degrees in criminology too and your last que I am not from IMO.

The fact that he's in the prison doesn't make him a criminal, we know the system in Nigeria is not quite transparent. He might be learning to understand his rights.
