History was made yesterday as the Ekiti Federal University in Oye-Ekiti has been renamed after the former Military Governor of the defunct Western Region, Major-General Adeyinka Adebayo whose remains were buried at his Iyin-Ekiti country home yesterday.

Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), announced the renaming at a funeral service in honour of the late Adebayo, who was the oldest surviving officer of the Nigerian Army at the All Saints Anglican Church, Iyin-Ekiti.

Osinbajo said the decision to name the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) after Adebayo was in appreciation of the deceased’s selfless service to the country in his lifetime.


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