After seven months of closure of academic activities in Nigerian Universities by members of Academic staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the Federal Government has ordered Vice Chancellors (VCs) to re-open schools and allow students resume lectures.

This was made known in a letter signed by the Director, Finance and Accounts of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Sam Onazi, on behalf of its Executive Secretary, Professor Abubakar Rasheed.

The letter was addressed to all VCs, Pro-Chancellors and chairmen of governing councils of federal universities.

“Ensure that ASUU members immediately resume/commence lectures; Restore the daily activities and routines of the various University campuses,” the letter partly reads.
