COVID-19: Universities To Remain Closed, NUC Tells VCs

By Gabriel Mobayonle

As part of efforts to curb the increasing wave of coronavirus, the National Universities Commission (NUC) has ordered Vice-Chancellors of universities to stop academic activities.

The NUC in a circular signed by the Deputy Executive Secretary, Chris Maiyaki, said classrooms, hostel accommodation, conferences and seminars are to be put on hold.

Maiyaki directed the universities to remain closed and await further instructions.

“Vice-Chancellors are to please note that the directive is part of the measures approved by Mr. President to mitigate the second wave of Coronavirus infections in the country.

“The affected officers are expected to perform their duties from home while those on GL 13 and above should strictly adhere to the extant preventive measures”, he said.

On December 22, the federal government ordered civil servants on GL 12 and below to stay at home for five weeks.

it will be recalled that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU earlier this week suspended its 9 months old strike.
