The Lagos State Chairman of Academic Staff Union of Universities [ASUU] - Dr Karo Ogbinaka made it clear that the association will strongly resist the recent change of University of Lagos (UNILAG) to Moshood Abiola University (MAU)
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, for 50 years. The first university established by Act of Parliament and one man trying to score cheap political point.
When people go outside and you ask them what university are you from? What name will you pronounce? They'll ask is it a new university? Is it the name of a toothpaste? It's a senseless thing and are going to resist it. He said.
