He further said that they are making moves to end the ongoing strike imposed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike before schools finally reopen.
He also said vice-chancellors have made calls for students in exit classes to resume and private schools owners have also requested to be allowed to resume.
“Tertiary institutions across the country will open very soon.
“Private universities have written us, requesting that they are allowed to reopen ahead of public institutions. Vice-chancellors have also requested that we allow them to reopen for their students in exit classes,” Nwajuiba said
He added that ahead of the reopening, the National Universities Commission (NUC) would have to do an appraisal of the state of tertiary institutions.
Nwajiuba appealed to the union to put an end to their strike as their grievances “have more or less been resolved”.
