The post is not entirely new ground to him, as he was the university's vice-chancellor from 1980 to 1981. The place is not unfamiliar as well, as he previously taught physics and mathematics there. Before that, he was a student at the NUS. The head of state here has traditionally worn the mantle of NUS chancellor.
