AFTER the resurgence of COVID-19, the National University Commission, NUC, has ordered all universities in the country to immediately suspend academic activities.

The commission particularly ordered vice-chancellors of universities not to allow any form of academic activities involving large crowds to be organized or hosted on their campuses.

NUC, in a circular signed by Chris Maiyaki, Deputy Executive Secretary (Administration), said that classrooms, hostel accommodation, conferences and seminars should be suspended.

He also ordered universities to remain closed during this interim period, pending further directives from FG on the reopening of schools.

The circular said: “The vice-rectors must bear in mind that the directive is part of the measures approved by the President to mitigate the second wave of coronavirus infections in the country.

“Affected officers are expected to perform their duties from home, while those in GL 13 and above must strictly adhere to existing preventive measures, including maintaining physical distancing, regular hand washing and / or hand disinfection, use of face masks and reducing the number of visitors to the offices. *
