NUC Directs Universities To Suspend Academic Activities by butterfly55(f): 5:05pm On Dec 25, 2020
Issued by NUC. Starting from 23rd December, all students should stay at home for 5 weeks because of the second wave of coronavirus.

Another school lockdown as ASUU lift strike.

Despite suspension of ASUU strike, university students won’t resume soon following NUC directive

Students in Nigerian public universities who were hoping to resume academic work after the Yuletide following the suspension of a strike by lecturers will have to wait longer.

This is because the National Universities Commission (NUC) has issued a directive to all universities to suspend academic activities due to the spread of COVID-19.

Nigeria is currently experiencing its second wave of COVID-19, with the country experiencing more new cases than ever. The over 5,000 new cases recoded last week was the highest weekly figure ever.

PREMIUM TIMES reported how lecturers in public universities, ASUU, on Wednesday, suspended their nine months strike after an agreement with the government on university funding and other matters.

ASUU also said its members were ready to work as soon as the government puts COVID-19 protocols in place in the universities.

“As far as we are concerned, we are ready to resume work. Let the government do what is needed to ensure safety. We insist that the COVID-19 protocol should be observed,” ASUU president Biodun Ogunyemi said.

While the government has not spelt out clear COVID-19 protocols for the universities, it had announced that all schools should remain shut till at least January 18.

The latest directive stopping physical academic activities, including in private universities not affected by the ASUU strike, thus means that until a counter directive by the NUC, universities will not resume academic activities.

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

Details of the NUC directive was contained in a circular by Chris Maiyaki, Deputy Executive Secretary (Administration), and obtained by a news agency, PRNigeria.

According to PRNigeria, the NUC said classrooms, hostel accommodation, conferences and seminars should be suspended.

It further directed that universities should remain closed during this intervening period, pending further directives by FG on the reopening of schools.

“Vice-Chancellors are to please note that the directive is part of the measures approved by Mr. President to mitigate the second wave of Coronavirus infections in the country. The affected officers are expected to perform their duties from home while those on GL 13 and above should strictly adhere to the extant preventive measures, including maintenance of physical distancing, regular washing of hands and/or sanitizing of hands, wearing of face masks and reducing the number of visitors to offices,” it said.

Despite the fact that the Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) suspended their 9 months old strike which hindered academic activities in all government owned universities within the country on Wednesday, resumption won’t be possible on or 15th January 2021 as announced by the minister of labour and employment Sen Chris Ngige.

This was contained in a statement circular headedRE: SECOND WAVE OF COVID-19: STAY AT HOME DIRECTIVE, and named HCSF/3065/Vol.1/47 . The statement was issued by the office of the head of civil service of the federation, that all workers both internal and external who are below Level 12 to stay at home for a period of 5 weeks with effect from December 2021.


The circular was released the same day the strike was was suspended. Rumors has it that the union has threatened to embark on another strike if the the government fails to meet up their demands.
