While at Jalingo Study Centre, Okagbare was given a tour of the centre by the director, Dr. Bala Waziri Kwata, which afforded the visitor the opportunity to inspect facilities at the study centre.

Okagbare, who is the Director, Learner Support Services (LSS), later monitored the exercise and expressed satisfaction at the professionalism of the staff in the conduct of the exercise and encouraged them to maintain the tempo.

He also held a brief interactive meeting with the staff of the centre where he admonished them to be committed to their duties, and urged them to ensure that the study centre and NOUN at large are taken to enviable heights as well as to portray a positive light of the university in the community.

The visitor commended the director of Jalingo Study Centre for the transformation witnessed at the centre and encouraged him to keep it up.

At Wukari Community Study Centre, the centre director, Dr. Bitrus Wada, who received Prof. Okagbare, expressed his delight for the visit and took him around the examination hall for proper monitoring and facility tour of the centre.
