The Federal Government has renamed the Federal University, Oye Ekiti, after the late military governor of the old Western Region, General Adeyinka Adebayo (retd.).
This was announced on Saturday at the funeral service held at All Saints Anglican Church, Iyin Ekiti.
The President was represented by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
The federal government had described Adebayo as an officer and a gentleman indeed, saying his military trajectory was in a way a lesson in Nigeria’s history.
According to Osinbajo, on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari, Adeyinka Adebayo Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, was one of the ways Nigeria would appreciate his contributions to the unity of the country and immortalise him.
