Shut up, kid! It's the practice. Traditional rulers are appointed pro-chancellors of Unis far away from their domain to foster unity. Ode!

Bros it's Chancellor not vice Chancellor. Chancellors are not as powerful as vice chancellors.

Stephen Iwuozo said...

A Chancellor is different from a Vice Chancellor. The Chancellor is merely a ceremonial position given to mainly traditional rulers while the VC is the administrative and academic head

Ezeasor Chukwunonso said...

Please guys... Before you start firing your blanks, Chancellor is different from Vice Chancellor. The Chancellor position is more or less a ceremonial one. I think its a welcome development, which will spearhead the reconcilliatory process between igbo and yoruba which in my OWN OPINION has gotten worse with this generation

Demmy said...


Onyx he can't be appointed as Oau Chancellor bcos he's d monarch in dat city. From time Memorial, monarch from anoda geoplitical zone ar elected as University Chancellor in anoda zone.
Vice Chancellor is different from Chancellor now, why ar people mixing dem up. Vice Chancellor is academician dats on ground in d school, bt Chancellor is like an honorary givin to monarchs. It doesn't Mata if d monarch is a core illiterate, all he does is to be present on graduation day... Chikena

John Aggrey said...

Some of the people commenting and criticizing Buhari here are doing so out of ignorance. The post of a chancellor is just a ceremonial one, the main chief executive of the institution is the vice chancellor. The ooni is just going to be a ceremonial head of the school who gives out advice when asked to do so. I may not be a fan of Buhari but I think the appointment is in order.

sanrock said...

You see chancellor vividly written there and you call it VC?.....yet you claim graduates and undergraduates....is really wa oo. For God sake chancellor's are not academic head of the school. The vice chancellor's are....

What a generation! Are we so ignorant in this country? So much as people dont know the difference between a university chancellor (ceremonial head) and its vice chancellor (VC/Administrative Head). Guys, before you all start convulsing on ur ignorance, are u aware that many Igbo monarchs are also chancellors in schools far away from thier territories? Gosh...all these negative comments on something that has been the normal practice in this country for decades. Even if you dont like the president, at least try n do some research b4 u make comments here. Ishhhh!

That's my Alma mater.

And I think it's a great combo.

The Ooni is very cerebral and young. Kinda the trend we need these days.

There's a Chancellor, then a Pro-Chancellor and finally the Vice-Chancellor. The Pro-Chancellor is the ceremonial head of a school,he/she heads the executive council.In Nigeria they are usually Monarchs.They rarely interfere with the smooth running of the school,it's only during convocations you see them. A monarch from a different region heads the school in another region, the idea behind this is to foster peace.The late TIV king was the chancellor of my school(MOUAU) during my days there. The Pro-Chancellor is the Chancellor's deputy.Often times they are Captains of Industries or highly influential and Successful people. The Vice Chancellor (VC),actually runs the show in the Unis.He/She is the academic head of the school.
Personally I think making the Oni the chancellor of UNN is a fantastic choice considering the way tribalism is threatening to tear us apart in this country. We tend to show more care to people of same tribe,am also guilty of this. Congratulations are in order for the Oni.

You do a bad job of educating your zombie readers especially the Igbo ones. The Igbos have over time continue to show their selfishness and hatred for other tribes. What's a Chancellor you animals? It is a honorary title you idiots. Your people are everywhere, dominating the spheres and you are complaining about a honorary appointment created to foster unity. Try for once to stop displaying your bestiality for the world to see. It's sickening.

Chai!!!! #Covers face# Reading through the comments here, I am ashamed of the so called future generation. People that do not even know the difference between a Vice Chancellor and a Chancellor! Castigating Buhari for appointing a Yoruba monarch as UNN's Chancellor! Have you not been reading or listening to news? This has been the practice from time immemorial. Please improve yourself and stop spending all your time on social media.

My people there is difference between Chancellor and Vice Chancellor. Chancellor offices are given to traditional rulers while Vice Chancellor offices are given to academicians. Chancellor offices are mostly cross cultural. Just to let you all know, thank you.

It's not a matter of who understand the territory but a matter of building coda relationship between Nigerians tribe and societal. Igbo could be appointed as a chancellor of university of ife ibadan or any where in Nigeria as long as he she comand integrity of the publace of this country.
