Buhari appoints Sultan, Emir of Ilorin, 40 other monarchs as universities' chancellors

Date: 2021-07-10

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Ogunwusi; Sultan of Sokoto, Sa'ad Abubakar, and 40 others as the chancellors of the 42 federal government-owned universities in Nigeria.

The minister of education, Adamu Adamu, who disclosed this at a press conference Thursday in Abuja, said while some of the prominent monarchs were reappointed, new ones were appointed to fill the vacuum created by some deceased royal fathers.

According to Mr Adamu, the president also approved and reassigned pro-chancellors and chairmen of governing councils of 23 of the federal universities and four university centres.

The monarchs who are drawn from the major royal stools nationwide, are expected to serve as the moral compass for the various universities to which they are assigned.

The minister also said they are expected to cement relationships between the institutions and communities.

He said; "Let me reiterate that the chancellors shall be presented to the university communities at an investiture ceremonies to be organised by the university for the purpose; or during the next convocation ceremony when the investiture will precede the conferment of degrees at convocation.

"The chancellors 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."

About chancellors

A chancellor is considered a ceremonial head in a university or college setting, while pro-chancellors serve as the chairpersons of the institutions’ governing boards. The chief executive and administrative head of the institutions on the other hand are the vice-chancellors.
