The President Muhammadu Buhari-led government had yesterday, ordered Vice-Chancellors to re-open schools.
 
It had asked the Vice-Chancellors of universities “to ensure that the striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) resume and commence lectures immediately.”
 
However, it later issued another directive withdrawing its earlier circular.
 
A report by DailyPost revealed that opinion leaders and other stakeholders interested in resolving the face-off between the ASUU and the government mounted pressure on government requesting that the circular, earlier sent to mandate the reopening of the universities, be withdrawn.
