Recall also, the Federal Government’s directive as conveyed in NUC circular ref NUC/ES/138/vOL63/151 of 23rd December 2020.
In total compliance with these directives under reference, the Vice-Chancellor has approved for all staff on CONTISS 11 and below to continue their Christmas holiday until the expiration of the five (5) weeks Federal Government stay-at-home order. However, staff on CONTISS 12 and above are to resume duty on 4th January 2021 as earlier announced.
The directive for staff on CONTISS 11 and below to stay at home is part of the measures being put in place to curb the rising wave of Covid-19 pandemic in the country.
