He noted that COVID-19 is still virulent, while mandatory guidelines haven’t been put in place by the institutions yet.

“We have reviewed responses from about 78 universities already, most of which are private universities who are insistent that they are ready to go.

“From the state-owned universities, we have a 50-50 response and we are working to upscale that and make sure that everybody is actually ready to go,” the Minister said.

Nwajiuba, however, expressed optimism that the institutions would soon be reopened, but said he would not bandy dates around.
