Though the minister did not announce any specific date for reumption, he, however urged all students to stop protesting and bear with th government a little bit more.
The minister speaking further said the ministry is working to articulate the situation report of tertiary institutions from the National Universities Commission (NUC) and other regulatory bodies for evaluation.
