Ekiti State Govt to rename university after Olumilua


The bill for the amendment of the law was sponsored by Adeoye Aribasoye and supported by members via a voice vote at plenary.

Speaking on the former governor, who died on June 4 at the age of 80, the Speaker, Funminiyi Afuye,  said, “It is to capture his contribution to the socio-political and economic life of Ekiti State and the old Ondo State in general.”

He described Olumilua as “a man of integrity, who deserves to be immortalised.”

He said the late Olumilua was the first Ekiti man to be elected as governor in the whole of Nigeria, adding that he lived “a very exemplary life”.
