NUC issues new directives on reopening of varsities

The National Universities Commission has released new directives to vice chancellors of Nigerian for safe reopening of universities.

The NUC directive was contained in a memo addressed to the vice chancellors, signed by the Director, Directorate of the Executive Secretary’s Office, Chris Maiyaki, on Tuesday.

The commission directed universities to conclude their resumption arrangements in line with the guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

The memo reads parly, “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.

Universities must continue to adhere to the safety protocols and the NCDC guidelines which are very much in force.”

The commission warned Universities not to violate the full cycle of the semester system, consistent with NUC approved ‘Benchmark Minimum Academic Standard’ for any reason.
