Federal University Renamed After Late Former VP Alex Ekwueme

Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo made the announcement on Friday, during the funeral service of the late elder statesman, Dr Alex Ekwueme.

He paid tributes to the late former Vice President, describing him as a rare gem who always upheld the principles of personal sacrifice and service to humanity.

''We celebrate Alex Ekwueme because he practiced the eternal principles that set men and women apart from their peers, whether they are poor or rich, famous or unknown; the principles of personal sacrifice for others, service to those who cannot offer a reward, the courage of one’s convictions, bravery in the face of terror”.


  1. Wow....I've never heard of that school. Strange.

  2. If unilag wasn't strong, they would have changed it to MOAUL that year.

  3. Cool.

  4. The renaming really caused a debate on facebook. Many Ebonyians wondered why Oko Polytechnic in Anambra was not chosen to be renamed after the late elder statesman. That's what you will get when you finally get your Biafra: a house divided against itself

    1. But it's true oh. They should have renamed federal polytechnic oko after him now. Alex Ekwueme is from oko and the polytechnic is a federal government owned and situated in his town. Why move it to Ebonyi state?

  5. Why didn't they honour him with the name change while he was alive?

    Nigeria My Nigeria

  6. I dislike changing of institutions names to honor people. I hate it
