Moreover, in a copy of the minister’s speech obtained by Punch correspondent,
he commended the higher institutions for responding promptly with different innovations,
including the manufacturing of some facilities needed for the COVID-19 Pandemic.

I urge all the Heads of Institutions not to wait till the announcement on reopening
before putting in place all necessary measures
in compliance with the protocols
and advisories of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control,” he added.
