Outgoing Nigeria’s president, Goodluck Jonathan has appointed the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, as the pro-chancellor of the University of Benin, Edo State.
It was learnt that the Emir was handed his letter of appointment at his palace on Monday by the Minister of Education, Ibrahim Shekarau.
Sanusi, after receiving the letter, said ‘doing good always has its benefits.’
“I’m saying this because as the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria then, I came to the rescue of the university by spending N500 million to construct a bridge yearned for by the university for over 30 years.
“If at that time one told me I would reap the reward of that job almost immediately I would not agree, but today, in Allah’s favour, I’m being appointed the pro-chancellor of the university, something that is telling one that he should always think of being good not only to his close people but to everybody far and near,” he concluded.
