Prof. Tenebe went on to say that graduates of the university are not mobilized to participate in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) while the law graduates are also not allowed to attend the Nigerian Law School, which is making it very hard and impossible for these graduants to qualify as practicing lawyers in the Nigerian Bar.
