The will be the third time the university has appointed former president as its chancellor.
The university has in the past appointed the late Kenneth Kaunda, former president of the Republic of Zambia, who was the pioneer chancellor, and Benjamin Mkapa, the late president of the United Republic of Tanzania, as its second chancellor.
Jonathan is expected to be installed on August 26, 2021, in time to preside over the university’s 10th graduation ceremony which will take place on the same date.
