COVID-19 Pandemic exposes default instructional leadership in African universities

The initiative to salvage the remaining 2020 academic calendar is commendable; however, it should not be done for recognition, approval or to be applauded, rather it should enhance achieving the purpose.

On the other hand, its poor leadership for universities to remain idle while waiting for government instructions about the next course of action.
