The Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, UNIZIK, Anambra State, has suspended the Chinese course in the school in the wake of the confirmation of the novel Coronavirus in Nigeria.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Charles Esomone, disclosed this during a pre-convocation press conference on Monday. He said the measure was taken to curtail the probable spread of the disease.
He said the University had also asked its Chinese lecturers, who travelled for Christmas vacation, not to return to the University while those who were around had been barred from travelling.
The course according to the VC will be continued online.
