At TCNN near Jos, November2007My dear friend and brother, Dr. Andrew Haruna has just been made a full Professor at University of Maiduguri. This is a matter for celebration and thanksgiving to God. It is richly deserved (indeed over-deserved compared to some of the political, religious and ethnic “professorships” granted in the past) and it is based solely on his widely recognised academic standing.

He is more handsome without glasses but I think a Professor should wear specs, somehow.

Andrew is used by the University and Teaching Hospital as a contact man for visiting academics and doctors (completely unpaid, by the way!) since he has such cross-cultural and organisational expertise.

The University website has a Google malware warning so I won’t post a link to it but you can see a few things on my Bature blog.
