The Deputy Executive Secretary (Administration), Chris Maiyaki, on behalf of the Executive Secretary of the NUC, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, on Friday said any further developments would be communicated to Universities accordingly.

The commission, however, directed officers on Grade Level 12 and below to remain at home for a period of five weeks as earlier directed by the Federal Government.


According to the NUC, the new directive became necessary sequel to several enquires on the full import of the commission’s previous letter with Ref. No. NUC/ES/138/Vol.63/151 and dated December 23, 2020, on the issue.

Maiyaki told universities to safeguard lives by strictly adhering to the extant safety protocols and guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, which have been communicated severally to them through NUC circulars.
