The director informed the staff that CMDU will be headed by Mr. Gbenga Olufemi; Printing Press by Oladapo Timothy Olusegun while Famous N. Arubi heads Warehouse.

While intimating the staff on the 2024 activities, he said the major task facing the directorate was Course Material review as well as Course Material development.

“The earlier we start, the better for us. Priority will be given to the faculties and departments that are going for accreditation. Be ready, be on your toes,” he said.

On tools and offices that would enable staff perform optimally, the director said arrangement is in top gear towards the realization of the directorate’s goals, urging staff to work amicably and lovingly towards one another.

He said the university has been having issues of course materials “and that is why the Directorate of NOUN Press was put together.

“Our aim is for NOUN to become a reference point in Nigeria, Africa and the world. Make us proud; make NOUN proud. If you stand out in your work, your work will stand you out. Don’t be a mediocre. The work you will do will be in your record.”
