Kogi State University has been renamed

Kogi State University has been renamed after the late first civilian Governor of the state, Prince Abubakar Audu by the current Governor, Yahaya Bello, on Friday.

The announcement was made during a state wide broadcast to mark His victory at the election petition tribunal.

According to the Governor, this is the ultimate honour that could be done to the memory of the late colourful politician who ruled the state twice as the civilian governor from 1991 to 1993 and 1999 to 2003.

It was gathered that the late Audu established the university in 2001 and named it Prince Abubakar Audu University, but his successor , Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, changed the name to Kogi State University in 2004.

As was disclosed by the Governor, an executive bill would soon be forwarded to the house of assembly to formalise the change in the name of the university.
