Nominate deputies that’ll succeed you on Tenure expiration– FG tells varsity VCs

 


The Federal Government has directed the National Universities Commission to inform all the Vice-Chancellors whose tenure will be completed soon to nominate through the recommendation of the Senate a Deputy Vice-Chancellor that will oversee the office of the Vice-Chancellor in a temporary capacity.

The government said the Governing Council after inauguration would appoint an Acting Vice-Chancellor for a period not less than six months during which the Council will commence the process of appointing a substantive Vice-Chancellor.

The directive was contained in a memo from the Federal Ministry of Education, dated May 28, 2024, to the NUC Executive Secretary, Chris Maiyaki. 

It reads, “I am directed to inform you to kindly disseminate the following information to all the Vice-Chancellors whose tenure will be completed soon:


“To nominate through the recommendation of the Senate a Deputy Vice- Chancellor that will oversee the office of the Vice-Chancellor in a temporary capacity.


“The Governing Council after inauguration would appoint an Acting Vice- Chancellor for a period not less than 6 months during which the Council will commence the process of appointing a substantive Vice-Chancellor.
