Referendum Against Changing UNIOSUN to BOLA IGE UNIVERSITY

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr


The change of name (Osun State University to Bola Ige University) is a political miscalculation and political misadventure.

late Chief Bola Ige was a national and international figure, So why can’t we name the Proposed international airport after him? or we name Freedom Park after him?

The Governor should have consulted widely with the house of assembly, staff and students before making such a decision.

We are no longer under the military era, where the Governor can just wake-up and do whatever he likes.

A former leader of the country once made the move to rename the University of Nigeria, (UNN), Nsukka after Nnamdi Azikwe, the first President of Nigeria.

Azikiwe was alive at that time rejected the offer, emphasising that UNN has its history and it will be unfair to distort the history which the name of the institution portray.

    Let us always consider that there were some renowned institution that have been renamed before UNIOSUN. Its a welcomed development which I urge all concerned students and member of the publics to accept in good fate. University of Ife to OAU, AAUA was established as (OAU in 1982, name changed to Ondo State University 1985, changed to AAUA 1999. this doesn’t change the originality of the school. OOU Ago Iwoye was formally Ogun state University. Ambrose Ali University formally Bendel State University, Edo State University. Ogun State Polytechnic now MAPOLY. etc. All these haven’t changed the originality and the history of the school neither has it rendered its graduates valueless or irrelevant. UNIOSUN isn’t the first school to be renamed after an hero. let’s us accept the name as BOLA IGE University. Congrats to us. #Proudly BOLA IGE University graduate#
