Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, on Wednesday appointed the dethroned Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi as the chancellor of the Kaduna State University.
A statement released by El-Rufai’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Muyiwa Adekeye, said Sanusi succeeded the pioneer Chancellor of KASU, His Highness, Malam Tagwai Sambo, the Chief of Moro’a in southern Kaduna.
This comes barely 24 hours after the governor appointed Sanusi into the board of its investment promotion agency.
The statement said, “The Kaduna State Government has named His Highness, Muhammadu Sanusi II as the Chancellor of the Kaduna State University, barely 24 hours after he was made the Vice Chairman of Kaduna State Investment and Promotion Agency.
“Sanusi II succeeds the pioneer Chancellor, His Highness, Malam Tagwai Sambo, the Chief of Moro’a, who was appointed to the role in 2005.
“Malam Nasir El-Rufai welcomes with gratitude the consent of His Highness Muhammadu Sanusi to serve as Chancellor of KASU and as Vice-Chairman of the board of KADIPA.
“The Kaduna State Government is grateful that HH Muhammadu Sanusi II continues to support and assist the realisation of the governance objectives of the Kaduna State Government.”
