FUOYE Changed Name To Adeyinka Adebayo University Oye-Ekiti AAUO

The Federal University, Oye Ekiti FUOYE, has been re-named to Adeyinka Adebayo University AAUO, after the late military governor of the defunct  Western Region.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo stated this  at the funeral service held for the late elder statesman at All Saints Anglican Church, Iyin-Ekiti on Saturday.

According to Osinbajo, the decision to honour the late Adebayo was as a result of his exemplary leadership qualities and his astute belief  in the peaceful existence of the country.

The acting President recalled how the deceased technical advice to the then military government helped to put the federal  troops  ahead of the  rebels  during the 1967 civil war.

He said were it  not for the bravery and exceptional military professionalism exhibited by Adebayo, Nigeria would probably not be a united nation today.

In his sermon preceding the burial, the Primate of the Anglican Church of Nigeria, Nicholas Okoh, said though the exit of Adebayo at 89 may be sad and unpleasant to many, death was  a necessity that no mortal could  avoid.

Okoh, who was represented by the Dean, Church of  Nigeria and Archbishop of  Ondo Province, George Lasebikan,  said it was saddening that many Nigerians were desperate to acquire wealth at all cost.

He urged Nigerians to  change their attitude to life and  embrace humility and contentment for the nation to move forward.
