The University of Lagos, Akoka was yesterday renamed the “Moshood Abiola University” by President Goodluck Jonathan. Mr Jonathan disclosed this during a nationwide broadcast to mark this years’ democracy day celebration. The President said that renaming the University is in appreciation and honour of the contribution of late MKO Abiola the acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election. “The Federal Government has decided that late Chief MKO Abiola should be honoured. In honour of Chief MKO Abiola, the University of Lagos is renamed the Moshood Abiola University.” Mr Jonathan said. Students of the MAU (formerly known as UNILAG) expressed grievance over the change of name and protested outside the school premises up to the Yaba environs which led to the blockage of most roads around that area early yesterday.
