The National Universities Commission has given fresh directive to the vice-chancellors of Nigerian universities before reopening of schools.
In a memo signed by the Director, Directorate of the Executive Secretary’s Office, Chris Maiyaki, on Tuesday, the NUC urged universities to prepare for full reopening of universities.
It, therefore, urged universities to conclude their resumption arrangements in line with the guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
The memo’s excerpts: “Universities should expect inspection visits from staffs of the commission and the Ministry of Education for on-the-spot inspections of physical facilities such as the lecture theatres, accommodation, healthcare facilities.
“Universities must continue to adhere to the safety protocols and the NCDC guidelines which are very much in force.”
