NUC lifts ban on Caritas University

The University Commission says Caritas University can now operate all its accredited programmes.

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has lifted its suspension of the Caritas University, Amorji Nike, Enugu State.

In a letter to the university, made available to the press on Friday, the commission said it lifted the suspension following the inspection of the institution by its forensic audit team.

The team, led by Dele Sanni, was in the institution from Monday and delivered the letter at a meeting with its principal officers late on Thursday.

The letter said the team went through the institution’s documents, facilities, personnel and other relevant things before arriving at its conclusion.

It, however, advised the institution to give more attention to its staff welfare, especially in the area of promotion.

The team also urged the principal officers to ensure that their staff members register with pension fund administrators as stipulated by the National Pension Commission.

It also advised the institution to adhere to the NUC hand book.

The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Lawrence Onukwube, had earlier told the team that the school was undergoing sanitisation and gave assurances that it would soon get to the top.

Caritas University, owned by the Catholic Church, is one of the seven Universities whose licenses were suspended by the NUC in early July.
