The Federal Government, through the National Universities Commission (NUC), on Monday, withdrew its circular which ordered vice chancellors, pro chancellors and governing councils to re-open federal universities.
Federal Government had earlier issued a circular directing all vice chancellors; pro chancellors and chairmen of governing councils to reopen universities.
But in another circular signed by the Director, Finance and Account of the NUC, Sam Onazi, the commission withdrew the order.
The government did not state any reason for withdrawing the first circular.
“I have been directed to withdraw the NUC Circular Ref: NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135, and dated September 23, 2022 on the above
“Consequently, the said circular stands withdrawn.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,”the latest circular read in part.
