FG Orders Outgoing Vice Chancellors to Hand Over to Deputies

The Federal Government has instructed Vice Chancellors (VCs) of federal universities nearing the end of their tenure to hand over to their deputies, who will serve as acting vice chancellors.

In a letter dated May 28, 2024, signed by Chris Maiyaki, acting Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), this directive follows an order from the Federal Ministry of Education. The handover process will be guided by recommendations from the universities’ senates.

The soon-to-be-inaugurated governing councils will then appoint acting vice chancellors for at least six months, during which time they will begin the process of selecting permanent VCs. This directive supersedes previous communications on the matter.
