ASSU DISAGREES WITH NATIONAL UNIVERSITY COMMISSION OVER RE-OPENING OF PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has declared that public universities were not ready to re-open despite the National Universities Commission (NUC) asking them to prepare for resumption according to COVID-19 safety protocols.

The National Vice –President of the union, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, in an interview in Abuja insisted that the public universities will not resume because social distancing and other COVID-19 protocols were practically impossible as the institutions were always overcrowded in the country.

He however called on the Federal Government to upgrade the education sector particularly universities across the country to enable resumption.
