The federal government has withdrawn its earlier pronouncement through the National Universities Commission (NUC) ordering vice-chancellors, pro-chancellors and governing councils to re-open federal universities.
There had been earlier reports that the director, Finance and Accounts of the NUC, Sam Onazi, had signed a circular tagged NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135, on behalf of the executive secretary of the commission, and addressed to all vice-chancellors; pro-chancellors and chairmen of governing councils of federal universities ordering them to re-open universities.
However, according to Punch, Sam Onazi, in another circular tagged NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/136, on Monday, withdrew the order.
Although no reason was given for the withdrawal of the order, 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“Consequently, the said circular stands withdrawn.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”
