An apology letter has been forwarded to the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje by the East Carolina University, over the recent controversy appointment of the Governor as a Senior Mentoring Scholar and Visiting Full Professor of e-governance and International Affairs.
The University in the letter also acknowledged the governor’s educational accomplishments, and noted that he possesses credentials held by those appointed to faculty positions.
The letter signed by the Interim Provost and Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Dr. B. Grant Hayes, said it was not the intention of the university to cause any embarrassment to the governor by its initial missive.
“I regret that this situation has caused any embarrassment, as that was not the intention of Carolina University, nor was it the reason for my letter,” it added.
Recall that the Kano State government had demanded an apology from the East Carolina University over the fake professorial appointment offered to Governor Ganduje.
Reacting to the saga via a statement on Sunday signed by the Kano SSG, Usman Alhaji, the state government said the development is an embarrassment to Ganduje.
