The National Open University of Nigeria has appointed retired Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman as Faculty member of its Business School.

Usman voluntarily bowed out of the Nigerian army as its Director of Public relations on Thursday after more than 35 years of service.

A statement issued by the Coordinator of NOUN Business School, Prof. Samaila Mande, on Tuesday and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria said the former army spokesman was appointed because of his wealth of experience.

Mande expressed optimism that as Public Relations and Communications expert, Usman would bring his wealth of knowledge and experience to bear in his new appointment.

He said with Usman’s appointment, the retired general would chair the Crisis Communication, Public Relations and Security Studies sessions of the School.9N5ktkqTURBXy8wNTY3ZTE0NDEwOTBmOWI5NDcxZjUxMWZiMWQ0ZGQ0Ny5qcGVnkpUDFgDNAlXNAVCTBc0DFM0BvA
