For all those Unilag/MAULAG students hoping for a reprieve from the dreaded name change, Senator Enang may have some good news for you. That new logo just might have to be benched for a while because, though the president may say that it is final, but it isn’t absolutely final accourding to the Senate committe Chairman on Rules and Business.
According to the Daily Trust, Enang was speaking with journalists in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, when he explained that the matter is open to change, as the president’s presentation to the National Assembly is still pending and will be deliberated upon.
“Well, the president made a presentation before the House and it is still pending. So many things will need to be considered during deliberations on the issue before the bill is passed for or against the renaming of Unilag.”
“In such situations, Abiola’s contributions to the formation of the institution in question will be considered. We will call for contributions from authorities concerned then look at precedence on such issues and also consider alternatives. If after due considerations, the renaming is found unnecessary, an alternative structure will be named,” he said.
So the protests may have done the job, after all.
