This is quite another news again, as ASUU plans to fight against University of Lagos state being renamed to Moshood Abiola university.
The chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Lagos branch,
Dr Karo Ogbinaka, said that the union will stand and fight the recent change of the university’s name to the last drop of their blood.
This is the exact words of Dr Ogbinaka.
“We are resisting it, all the unions and the students will resist it, the Alunmus will resist it.
The truth about the whole thing is that it shows the level of intelligence of those people in government. Nobody will change Harvard’s name, nobody will change Cambridge’s name to Winston Churchill University. University of Lagos is a brand, and has been a brand for 50 good years.
The first university established by Act of Parliament and one man trying to score cheap political point. When people go outside and you inquired of them which university are they from, What name will be the name pronounce and mentioned?
They’ll ask is it a new university? Is it the name of a toothbrush?
It is a senseless thing and we, the ASUU body are going and doing our best to resist it.
Karo said and finalized”
