Why would you change a prestigious university's name in honor of a great guy who had nothing to do with Unilag!!!

Goodluck? more like bad luck for nigerians

I too was a bit puzzled at the name change. In my opinion it is completely unnecessary even if it was to honor Abiola. They could have renamed a park or a building but an entire uni renamed within 24 hours?

correct me if im wrong but wasn't abiola born / grew up in Abeokuta not lagos. So why name unilag after him and not an Abeokuta university? All this is just so random without any clear justification for a name change, hence why i can understand why some people are mad.

Abiola was a great philantrophist and he donated a lot of money to Nigerian universities including Unilag (MKO University)

He is also the only Nigerian to have won an Election free and fair.

He is a great man and even though I think the name change is unnecessary, he certainly isn't the worst choice that the presidency could have chosen.

Well:? A building would have sufficed
University of Nsukka declined suggestion to change its name for historic reasons.

GEJ should take care of things more important than to think of reappointing a university. This President there disappoints me enormously.

Babatunde Raji Fashola for President 2015!!! Naija has need..

How can you just wakeup and decide to change the name of an institution; no votes by stakeholders, no consultation of their staff, no town hall meetings to engage the government. This is not an autocratic government. There's nothing wrong with changing the name of the institution , but the process of change is blatantly and completely antithetical to the fundamentals of democracy.

IDk why everyone is worked up about this. No one have given me a legit reason why they disagree with the name change, all they've been saying is "why would they do such as thing"? Please people there're bigger issues to worry about.

Lack of vision, useless Government; if you need to immortalize M.K.O, build a monument no change the brand name of such a prestigious University. I don't know how these useless thieves called politicians think. Dr. Jonathan my foot; no single symptom of being a doctorate degree holder in his decision making. Instead of calling it 3rd mainland bridge, how about MKO Abiola bridge?

prestigious what? stop celebrating failure abeg
Its all part of the failure of Nigeria as a nation!!!

You can never imagine Obama changing University of kentucky or kansas to booker t washington university or JFK university, there will be an outrage.

You have a president who didn't consult the most important people at the school..the students!!! He just changed the name because he is the president, this is not a dictatorship..its democrasy!!!

Chineke help us cha!!! I could make a better president than that idiot!

Government of the people right? Nigerians own the government, the president doesn't dictate what is what, all part of the corruptions that have infested nigeria from day one, so i don't see the point you are trying to make.

Thinking like YOU, is exactly WHAT is wrong with Naija.

Too many Faulty, ill mannered, and semi-literate people running around the streets, thinking they are so wise......Nairaland shows this well {for those who don't get what I mean, just go to that site and look}.

Well, if u don't like the new name of your school, change College to te one your DAD built ba..... Shebi, u dont want government to name their institutions bi, Abi?? :lol:

The point is that why would you change the name of a major university in nigeria, why not chose a school in abeokuta to name it after.

I don't understand why you keep bringing nairaland into this mata.
