We Did Not Appoint Ganduje As Visiting Professor - US University

The East Carolina University in the United States of America has refuted claims they it appointed Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, as a visiting professor.

It said the letter sent to him by a member of its faculty was unauthorized by appropriate officials.

Spokesman for the governor, Abba Anwar, had on Tuesday said the governor’s appointment was contained in a letter sent by the school through a lecturer of the International Centre for IT and Development, Victor Mbarika, at the university’s College of Business on November 30.

Reacting to the claims, the university’s Interim Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Dr Grant Hayes, in a letter to Ganduje, dated December 4, 2020, titled ‘Re: Unavailability of Faculty Appointment,’ said, “I must inform you that that the letter you received from Dr Victor Mbarika on November 30, 2020 does not convey an authorised offer of appointment or establish any position of scholar or professor at East Carolina University.”
