Jonathan appoints former CBN boss, Emir Sanusi as UNIBEN pro-chancellor


Sanusi-Lamido-Sanusi-Now-The-New-Emir-Of-Kano-1 The former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, and Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi  (Muhammad Sanusi II), has been appointed as the pro-chancellor of the University of Benin, Edo State.

Sanusi received his letter of appointment at his palace on Monday from the Minister of Education, Ibrahim  Shekarau. The former CBN boss who raised the issue of the missing money at NNPC, said it is good to  always do good.

“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 said.
