Why FG Reversed Decision To Reopen Universities in the Wake of ASUU Strike


New details on why the Federal Government swiftly revoked its order to the various university administrations to reopen public universities have emerged as a result of the present ASUU members’ strike.

Keep in mind that vice-chancellors were already given permission by the Federal Government to reopen institutions.

It had posed the following questions to university vice-chancellors:

“to make sure that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) members who are on strike resume and start classes right away.”

It eventually retracted its prior circular in a new directive, nevertheless.

The ASUU and other parties interested in settling the dispute put pressure on the government to retract the circular that had previously been sent to order the reopening of the universities, according to information obtained by DSMEDIA24.

In response to the ongoing invention by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, a top official in the Ministry of Education who did not want his identity published revealed that “the circular was withdrawn to allow for more dialogue between government and the ASUU.”
