The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has written to remind President Muhammadu Buhari on the renaming of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti as Adeyinka Adebayo University, FUOYE.
Governor Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose
The new name is after Military Governor of defunct Western State, late General Robert Adeyinka Adebayo.

Recall that General Adebayo died in 2017 and was buried on May 20, the same year at Iyin-Ekiti, his home town.

Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Acting President, who then represented President Buhari at the burial, announced the decision of the Federal Government to rename the Federal University.

It is now almost nine months after this announcement was made, but the change was yet to be effected by the Federal Government.

In a letter dated January 29, 2018, with reference number EK/GOV/28/93, Fayose urged the President to effect the change without further delay.

The letter read; “As Your Excellency is aware, the Late General Robert Adeyinka Adebayo (Military Governor of defunct Western State and one time Head of the Nigerian Army died last year).

“Your Excellency was represented at his burial on May 20, 2017 by the then Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo (GCON) at Iyin-Ekiti, his home town.

“The Acting President at the occasion announced the decision of the Federal Government to rename the Federal University, Oye Ekiti as Adeyinka Adebayo University in recognition of the exemplary leadership of the late hero and frontline Statesman.

“However, more than seven months after this pronouncement, nothing has been done.

“Your Excellency, this letter therefore is to serve as reminder of this significant decision of the your Government so as to enable appropriate directive(s) and implementation.

“On behalf of the People and Government of Ekiti State, I thank Your Excellency for the thoughtfulness, please.”
