In an effort to increase students enrolment, the management of Nsu Community Study Centre of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), has taken its advocacy campaign of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode of instructional delivery to the Episcopal Villa of the Archbishop of Owerri Ecclesiastical Province, the Bishop of Okigwe South, Anglican Communion, Most Rev.Dr D. O.C Onuoha, in Imo State. 

Acting director of the centre, Dr. John Onyemauche Oparaduru, who led the delegation, said the visit was to inform the clergy about the existence of NOUN centre at Nsu community and to solicit his help to disseminate information about the centre to his congregations so as to take advantage of ODL which the institution provides. 

In his response, Onuoha welcomed the team and applauded the centre's visit, promising to use his good office to pass the message about the institution to his church members. 

He advised the advocacy team to extend its tentacles to other heads of Churches so that they can, in turn, reach out to their worshipers. 

Onuoha, while acknowledging that the centre has come to stay, also prayed for the rapid growth of the centre.
