- The association of Akure Students frown at the statement made by Afe Babalola(SAN) to change federal University of
Technology,Akure to late Alhaji Shehu Shagari’s name. The association said they may not be a student of history but they are sure that the late president is not their hero. The only person who contributed to western state and deserves such honour has been honoured; in person of chief Obafemi Awolowo. The hero of the Yoruba contributed to education by giving free education. Changing the University name because of the late president is baseless. Apart from the fact that it is located at Akure,Ondo state,he is no hero of Akure and does not deserve such honour. If Afe Babalola thinks he deserve such honour then he should change the name of his university to Shehu Shagari. One of the things people should fight for is their honour while living because that’s the only thing that count after death. It does not make sense changing FUTA for his sake because actually he doesn’t deserve it. One of the university in the north should be rename to honour not FUTA. The association has called the FG discard the statement by Afe Babalola and would not be silence should FG decides to take action.
