National universities commission (NUC) has directed vice chancellors of all universities to resume academic activities on January 18, 2021

Universities across the county are expected to resume academic activities on Monday, January 18, 2021 in line with a directive issued on Friday by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

The NUC said the directive stemmed from the advice of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 on the resumption of schools.


The Deputy Executive Secretary (Administration) of the commission, Mr. Chris Maiyaki, in a statement in Abuja, urged the universities to safeguard lives by strictly adhering to the extant safety protocols and the guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) on COVID-19.

He noted that the guidelines have been communicated on several occasions to university authorities through circulars from the commission.

The Deputy Executive Secretary stated that on the resumption of academic activities, universities must under no circumstance violate the full cycle of the semester system, consistent with the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) approved by the NUC, as well as other extant quality assurance standards and guidelines.

He, however, said officers on Grade Level 12 and below should remain at home for a five-week period as earlier directed by the federal government.
