NUC Issues New Directives To Nigerian Universities On Steps To Take To Reopen...


The National Universities Commission (NUC) has directed Vice-Chancellors of Universities in Nigeria to finalize resumption plans in line with COVID-19 compliance guidelines.

The directive was contained in a statement on Tuesday by the NUC signed by its Director (Directorate of the Executive Secretary’s Office), Chris Maiyaki and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

It noted that the fresh directive is in line with observed general reduction in cases of coronavirus infection in the country and urged the VCs to conclude plans on safe reopening of schools in line with existing guidelines.

The statement reads, “Following the recent press briefing by the Presidential Task Force Team on COVID – 19, to the effect that significant decline in the reproduction number (R-value) for COVID – 19 has been recorded in the country, the Federal Ministry of Education has accepted the request of the National Universities Commission for Universities to firm up arrangement towards the immediate resumption of academic activities.

Universities should expect inspection visits from staffs of the commission and the Ministry of Education for on-the-spot inspections of physical facilities such as the lecture theatres, accommodation, healthcare facilities.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has noted that its members will not return to classes until the Federal Government honours the agreement it struck with the union.

  1. Asuu make una rest na hian!

    1. Don't mind ASUU 70% have gone to abj to register for ippis before hunger kills them.Buhari has humbled them.

  2. Rest ke.when government has refused to pay salaries?

    1. Which salaries please? Government is not owing them. They get their salaries every month.

    2. Which university? Its the nonacademic staffs that receive salary.. Be sure of what you are saying..

    3. Neme,most have gone for ippis registration and have since be receiving salaries.Govt is not owing them.

  3. Yet no date of resumption... some Uni have resumed.Some states too like Anambra started school tey tey

  4. I legit realised that ASSU is a demonic institute. Very selfish people. Always going on strike for the most stupid things. OAU and kogi state university has pulled out and joined another organisation and they rarely go on strike again. This people are the problem. In fact they are bigger than the government when it comes to taking the bigger share of the decayed educational system
