PREMIUM TIMES reports that the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, on Thursday, deferred the award of an honourary doctorate degree earlier approved for the dethroned Emir of Kano, Lamido Sanusi.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Charles Esimone, announced the deferment of the award during the 14th convocation ceremonies of the University.

“The Senate of the University duly approved the award to former Emir Muhammadu Sanusi.”
