The Federal Government, through the National Universities Commission, withdrew its circular on Monday afternoon ordering vice chancellors, pro chancellors, and governing councils to reopen federal universities.

Journalists had previously reported that all vice chancellors, pro chancellors, and chairmen of governing councils of federal universities had received a circular with the subject line NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135 ordering them to reopen their institutions.

However, the commission revoked the order in a subsequent circular with the number NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/136, which was also signed by Sam Onazi, the NUC’s director of finance and accounts.

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 NUC Circular Ref: NUC/ES/138/Vol.64/135, and dated September 23, 2022 on the above

“Consequently, the said circular stands withdrawn. All pro-chancellors and chairmen of governing councils, as well as vice-chancellors of federal universities are to please note. Further development and information would be communicated to all relevant stakeholders.

“Please accept the assurances of the Executive Secretary’s warmest regards”
