The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) is an open and distance learning (ODL) institution established in July 1983 by President Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari - the first executive president of Nigeria and the University's founding President. President Shagari envisioned a university with the capacity to admit and satisfy the education and skill needs of Nigerians no matter their status or circumstances. Driving this vision was the realization that a sustainable democracy, functional economy, happy and prosperous people, all depend on knowledgable citizens. President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo resuscitated NOUN in 2002 following a 19-year suspension of operations.
