Mr Ganduje was appointed as a visiting professor to ECU based on his ''accomplishment in good governance and genuine investment in human capital development.''

A tertiary institution in the United State of America, the East Carolina University (ECU), has appointed the governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, as a visiting full professor of e-governance and international affairs.

The announcement was reportedly confirmed to journalists in Kano on Tuesday by Abba Anwar, spokesperson to Mr Ganduje.

Mr Anwar disclosed that Mr Ganduje’s appointment was contained in a letter sent to him by the school dated November 30 where he was said to have been selected for his “accomplishment in good governance and genuine investment in human capital development.”

He also quoted the letter as saying that “Ganduje’s choice is a depiction of close monitoring of his achievements as a governor in the last couple of years. Which eventually earned him global recognition and commendation.”

“You have been a source of motivation to the Nigerian youths both at home and in the diaspora at large. We are amazed at your accomplishments both as the Executive Governor of Kano State, Nigeria, Fellow National Association of Educational Administration and Planning, Nigeria, and your investment in Human Capital Development”.

Following the appointment, Mr Ganduje will be providing mentorship for PhD students, junior lecturers of the institution and also advise the institution’s research centre on academic issues related to e-governance and international affairs.

“Looking at your academic, administrative, and overall leadership record in Nigeria and Africa, you fit perfectly in East Carolina University’s goal to remain a leading research and teaching institution in the United States and beyond”, the statement quoted the letter as saying.

Corrupt governor?

PREMIUM TIMES in 2018 reported that Mr Ganduje was caught on video, taking kickback in dollars from a contractor in the state.
