Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed chancellors for the forty-two (42) federal universities in the country.

 

The announcement was made by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu on Thursday in Abuja.

 

He 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 Chancellors 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.
