BREAKING: Federal Government Now Renames FUOYE After General Adebayo

The Federal Government has renamed the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, after the late military governor of the old Western Region, Major General Adeyinka Adebayo.

This was announced on Saturday by the acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, at the funeral service of the late General, held at All Saints Anglican Church, Iyin Ekiti.

Osinbajo, who delivered President Muhammadu Buhari’s oration at the funeral service, described Adebayo as an officer and a gentleman indeed, saying his “military trajectory was in a way a lesson in Nigeria’s history.”
