FG Makes U-turn, Withdraws Order To Vice Chancellors To Reopen Universities

The Federal Government, through the National Universities Commission (NUC), on Monday afternoon withdrew its circular which ordered Vice Chancellors, Pro-chancellors and Governing Councils to reopen federal universities.

The PUNCH had exclusively reported earlier that a circular tagged NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135 was addressed to all Vice Chancellors; Pro-chancellors and chairmen of Governing Councils of federal universities ordering them to reopen universities.

But in another circular tagged NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/136, which was also signed by the Director, Finance and Account of the NUC, Sam Onazi, the Commission withdrew the order.

Though it did not explain why. The letter tagged, “withdrawal of circular NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135 dated September 23, 2022” partly read, “I have been directed to withdraw the NUC Circular Ref: NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135, and dated September 23, 2022 on the above subject.

“Consequently, the said circular stands withdrawn. All pro-chancellors and chairmen of governing councils, as well as vice-chancellors of federal universities are to please note. Further development and information would be communicated to all relevant stakeholders.

“Please accept the assurances of the Executive Secretary’s warmest regards.”
