Breaking: Confusion as FG makes u-turn, withdraws universities’ reopening order

Blueprint Whatsapp

The federal government has withdrawn its circular which ordered vice-chancellors, pro-chancellors and governing councils to re-open universities across the country following the lingering strike by university lecturers.

Blueprint earlier reported an order for an immediate reopening by the National University Commussion (NUC), Monday morning.

The Director, Finance and Account of the NUC, Sam Onazi, released another statement tagged NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/136, on Monday evening of September 26, 2022, retracting the earlier statement released by the commission.

“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“Consequently, the said circular stands withdrawn.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.”
