The management of Asaba Study Centre, National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Asaba, Delta State, on Tuesday, 15th August, 2023, blazed the trail of a novel advocacy strategy, called instant admission advocacy on the streets of the capital city of Delta State.

The initiative which took the advocacy train to strategic locations in the city of Asaba and its environs, took the form of a road show with mobile discotheque complete with a disc jockey and professional dancers and attracted immense attention.

The advocacy campaign was carried out in collaboration with notable corporate organisations in Asaba: Rainoil Ltd, Chinedu and Sons Investment Nig. Ltd, Oshimili South Local Government Council and Crunchies Restaurant.
