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.
