We Need Help To Reopen Varsities, Says VC

The federal government’s conditions for the reopening of universities across the country has elicited a response from the vice chancellor of the University of Jos, Prof. Sebastian Maimako.
He said it would be difficult to meet the conditions unless federal government was ready to assist them.
The federal government had detailed guidelines and conditions to be met by higher institutions before reopening after being shut for over three months.

Among the conditions recommended was that schools should have temporary isolation spaces and fully-equipped clinics. They are also directed to have more classrooms and employment of more teachers.
The Vice-Chancellor said though the conditions were commendable but the resources needed to actualise them were scarce.

Maimako said, “We want our students to return to the classrooms but we have the challenge of meeting these conditions before the schools would be allowed to reopen. That is why we are appealing to the Federal Government to assist the universities in this regard so that students can resume their normal studies.”
