Following the establishment of additional universities, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment and reassignment of chancellors to forty-two (42) federal universities.
The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, who disclosed this at a press conference Thursday in Abuja, said the exercise is intended to also replace deceased Chancellors of some Federal Universities.
He noted that those appointed are expected to play a role in cementing relationships between communities in the country.
He said “As royal fathers, these Cchancellors are expected to be the moral compass of the various universities to which they are assigned.
“Let me reiterate that the chancellors shall be presented to the university community at an investiture ceremony to be organized by the university for the purpose; or during the next convocation ceremony when the investiture will precede the conferment of degrees at convocation.
Adamu added “the Chancellor shall in relation to the university take precedence before all other members of the university, and when he is present shall preside at all the meetings of convocation held for conferring degrees.
