Madonna University, Okija, Anamra State had its operational licence restored yesterday by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
The licence was suspended by the NUC which accused the university of running unauthorised courses.
In an August 10 letter to the institution’s authorities, the Director, Quality Assurance at the NUC, Professor C. Mafiana, said the commission is now satisfied with the steps taken by the university since the suspension came into force.
He said: “The National Universities Commission is satisfied with the actions so far taken by the University, as well as the assurances of the Vice-Chancellor and the Board of Trustees (BOT) during our interactions and subsequent verification of documents.
“Consequently, I am directed to inform the Vice-Chancellor that the suspension of operational licence of Madonna Univsity, Okija, has been lifted with effect from Friday 17, August, 2012.
“The commission would, however, continue to monitor the University’s implementation of the agreed actions, including full compliance with other regulatory guidelines and would not hesitate to impose appropriate sanctions for any observed breaches,” the letter stated.
