The NUC has directed the vice chancellors of universities to suspend academic activities even after the suspension of ASUU strike.

The directive to all universities was given to halt the spread of the COVID-19.

The over 5,000 new cases recoded last week was the highest weekly figure ever.

ASUU had said its members were ready to work as soon as the government puts COVID-19 protocols in place in the universities.

While the government has not spelt out clear COVID-19 protocols for the universities, it had announced that all schools should remain shut till at least January 18.

The latest directive stopping physical academic activities, including in private universities not affected by the ASUU strike, thus means that until a counter directive by the NUC, universities will not resume academic activities.
