The National Universities Commission, or NUC, has ordered that all colleges and university centers close from February 22 to March 14.
Academic pursuits will be interrupted during the suspension, according to NUC.
The declaration was made in a statement that Chris Maiyaki, the Deputy Executive Secretary (Administration), signed.
The statement claims that the choice was made in response to worries about staff, student, and university property security during the general elections slated for February 25 to March 14.
According to the Commission, Mallam Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education, issued the decision after consulting with the appropriate security authorities.
