Former President Goodluck Jonathan has been appointed as the Chancellor of Cavendish University Uganda (CUU), in Uganda.
The university which was established about 13 years ago announced the appointment of Jonathan via various social media platforms on June 22.
The university on its Twitter page wrote: “Welcome on board Goodluck Jonathan as you take over as the Chancellor of CUU. We look forward to this new era and achieving great things under your leadership.”
Jonathan becomes the third former president to be appointed as chancellor of the university.
The late Kenneth Kaunda, former president of the Republic of Zambia, was the pioneer chancellor, and Benjamin Mkapa, the late president of the United Republic of Tanzania, the 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.
