The Senate has approved the renaming of the University of Lagos to the Moshood Abiola University. Senate approved the renaming bill which was sent earlier in the week by President Goodluck Jonathan to ensure there is no embarrassing rejection of the name-change in what many Nigerians saw as illegal and unconstitutional
The Nigerian Senate is on recess, the bill had been passed without delay but the Senate will make it publicly known after its members return from recess. Other institutions that were renamed in the same bill sent to the Senate were the Federal University of Technology Umudike which was renamed to the Michael Okpara University, Umudike and the Federal Univeristy of Technology, Yola renamed to the Modibbo Adamawa University.
