The Federal Government, through the National Universities Commission, Monday afternoon, withdrew its circular which ordered vice-chancellors, pro-chancellors, and governing councils to re-open federal universities.
The commission earlier on Monday issued a circular tagged NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135, addressed to all vice-chancellors; pro-chancellors, and chairmen of governing councils of federal universities ordering them to re-open universities.
But in another circular tagged NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/136, which was also signed by the Director, Finance, and Account of the NUC, Sam Onazi, the commission withdrew the order.
Though it did not explain why. 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 commission Circular Ref: NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135, and dated September 23, 2022 on the above subject.
