ASSU: WE WILL RESIST UNILAG CHANGE OF NAME

The spokes man for the Academic Staff Union Of Univeristy (ASUU) Mr. Karo Ogbinaka sad the union will not comply with the President decion to change the name of the University Of Lagos.

Dr Ogbinaka said:
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. Karo said
