I think the students have a lot of spare time and are taking this thing too far. True jonathan should concern himself with important issues but MALU students should give it a rest, MKO was a national hero I beg

A protest,yeah? This is sooo uncalled for! They're being very irrational. Did they seek admission into the school for its name or for "education". *SMH* Very dumb move. I seriously wish they could get punished.

I really support the student rioting against the change of name.Our Government should look for areas that are dead(in quote) in our Academic sections and bring it to life, not killing the good thing that our predeccessors have toiled for in the name of making a point.President GoodLuck should go and establish a new University in Ogun State or where MKO is from and name it after MKO not UNILAG. before

They re going too far but I hp d police wldnt shot anyone all in d name of mistake

California love said...

In as much as I dont like the move by Mr jonathan I still know The name has been changed and that's it. Protesting from now till thy kingdom come will never change anything. Go back to history you will see that such cant be reversed . Please be careful because this could be another way of unnecessary shooting by our police men. I don't like protest in Nigeria because its always bloody as all the aboki police men will want to show their shooting skills. So be warned oo

jobless students what has renaming the school got to do with their education. The fed. govt is wrong but messing up other people's day and plans is even more wrong. youths of today any excuse to cause trouble.

Are they crazy dey shud bera leave us alone. Kmt

Obviously, it is amazing that these so-called students would abandon their lectures and risk their lives over an issue that is not their concern.
The name UNILAG did not come down from heaven, someone or some people in Government here on Nigeria called it that many years ago.
The same Government is changing it and some students feels they have no right. Haba!
This will not even stop students from applying for admission there next session no matter what it is called. Please go get a life!

Nawa ooo, cos of change of name? They are so not serious. The students I mean.

shadie said...

Yes Abiola won the election,but who was Abiola, He was IBB'S best friend who ibb betrayed when abiola refused to give back the money ibb kept with his wife simbiat when she died,WHERE DID ABIOLA GET HIS WEALTH FROM? from his military friends who devalued the currency through the IMF loans,abiola sponsored a lot of coups both in Nigeria and outside e.g Uganda. we should stop celebrating all these foolish people who are the wealth of nigeria for themselves and their families.May the wrath of God visit them.

I was in the traffic for well over 2hrs before Police came to disperse them.

I however identify with the Students and their cause as all my degrees are from Unilag.

The president should go and chnage Uni Abuja to his MAU or better still name one of his 9 new universities same. Those that have always beefed Unilag are the ones saying we should move on but remember that if this stays then University Of Ibadan or Nsukka could soon be named Edvin Clark University all for Political reasons.

These students shd get over it and return to school! What nonsense! Now aren't they acting like proper Moshood Abiola University students?? Where did all d "Poshness" disappear to? Now I'm thinking they really deserve the razz name they've been christianed

Who is Abiola for nigerians, the one that lost a presidential election. Why is he so important to Jonathan than millions of the students of that prestigios university and the peace of the nation as a whole. How did Abiola contribute to the educational development in this country? Why the too much honour. Why not him build an institute somewhere for study of democracy and developmental study or any thing related to it. GEJ, GEJ, GEJ. How many times have i called you. Be careful with your advicers, they are not giving you the best. Look at Charles Taylor dont allow any harm to befall any student because of this. If you want votes for 2015; do good work like giving the nation steady electricity it may be enough for many nigerians, not just playing planks .GEJ GEJ GEJ i have called you again

Idiot! why would they get punished when even ASUU is also against the change of name? UNILAG is a brand name. U don't just change things like that.

If your child is out there on the street rioting for a foolish thing like change of name, you better call him/her to come back home because I foresee this turning bloody. A word is enough for the wise. We have more pressing issues to attend to in Nigeria right now. Rioting bcos of this is the last thing we should be doing. Msheeeeeeew!

Do you know what Ȋ̝̊̅̄†̥̥ is to have a brand name? I don't think S̶̲̥̅ơ̴̴̴̴̴̴͡,change a brand,you should look @ the consequences and effect on the school,the certificate ,because they will be asked if its a new school,GEJ should have carry them alone ,than renamining the school with their consent.

There is a reason for every action, people! This is supposed to be a democratic nation... Which Educational heads where consulted , was it a unified agreement or a DICTATED ONE. That's the issue.

UNILAG name changed again?

Following the chaos generated as a result of the 'renaming' of the erstwhile University of Lagos- Moshood Abiola University, it has now been re'renamed Kasimaawo University of Lagos- KUL.
sounds better doesn't it?

as long there's no bloodshed, random shootings then they should carry us. since GEJ has refused to deliver let him be frustrated. i'm with Unilag students both past and present on this one. dis man can't take everything from us. lai lai!!!!

Amadi Cynthia said...

Great Akokites! am with you guys in the spirit of the protest, however, you are going about it the wrong way, disrupting your academics in the school where Jonathan has no stake is not wise. His children will school abroad while you take to the streets.
Please go back to the classrooms and device better forms of resistance, you are disturbing innocent individuals who just like you are against this foolishness from the Presidency. If you had gone to occupy abuja, i will understand, pls allow Lagosians to go about their businesses.
Please stop cursing out on those who do not feel our pain cos not everyone will sympathize with you.
I regret Voting for the guy. As youths let us ensure we do not repeat the mistakes of 2011, in 2015, if you are offered money by any politician, spend their money but vote your conscience.
Children get missing everyday, nothing is done about it, our youth are now an instrument of vice, yet no provision, they spend so much on sitting allowances on probes which yield no punishment for the offending parties, lets not even talk about the basics like electricity. He has the effrontery to rename my Almamata! let me stop here before i lose it. We are waiting for Oct 1st, since he waits for a national holiday to throw an ugly surprise

Chinny U said...

Please- they should stop disrupting the nation and go and study!
I did my MBA at a university in Toronto called Ryerson University- it had been called that for years but it was renamed after I left the university to Ted Rogers School of Management after a well-known Canadian. I left Ryerson University in my resume but added Ted Rogers School of Management beside it (in bracket). It didn't affect my chances of finding a well-paying job! If an employer asked, I simply explained that the name was changed, it didn't cost me any interviews or jobs. If the students don't get jobs- it will be due to many other factors but definitely not the name of the university.

Thank you Shadie...god bless you. anyone that thinks Abiola is a hero just either is very young to know history. Abiola has been stealing before the likes of Abacha had the opportunity to steal,. he planned coup and did all sort of evil. he looks like a messiah cos obviously, the likes of abahca has committed worse attrocities that makes abiola's attrocities seem like childs play.

@Shadie, you are a real bastard for your tales by moonlight. You were not even born when your story telling morons gave you that rubbish story which we Nigerians are known for. Abiola is our hero, dont you ever forget that. Go and ask your elders if they did not benefit from Abiolas money in your prestigious university which i aslo attended by the way. You wouldnt know about Abiola because 80% of the time you are waiting for your aristos at moremi and completely abandoned your studies. Abiola gave us what we have today, like it or not. He was the only billionaire in the history of Nigeria that has contributed the most to all universities in this country. Pull me down syndrome is worrying you and your family. Tunder go wire you.

Do any of you remeber how the Arab Spring started? Let me refresh your memory then, some seemingly irrelevant vegetable stall owner burnt himself to death in Tunisia bcus government officials refused to give him a license to earn a living.

Something so irrelevant lighted the spark for the various revolutions happening in the Arab world. Yes they are protesting the name of their school BUT they are also protesting the ARROGANCE of a president who thought to make such a decision without consulting the stakeholders involved.

All you pple saying that we should be facing more pressing matters,please go on and tell me how we as a nation are addressing issues such as lack of infrastructure and the recent fuel subsidy fraud. Apart from talk wat are u pple doing. Abeg SHARRAP!

For those of you who say there is nothing wrong in rebranding; I av worked in d marketing research industry for years now and i have never come across a rebranding strategy which doesn't involve researching d opinions of d stakeholders. Gej did not even consult with stakeholders not to to talk of research. The outcome of his decision should therefore not be a surprise especially when the majority of stakeholders are a very vibrant youth population.

If it will actually cost 1billion to rebrand unilag, my fellow nigerians do you think it is advisable to carry on with this investment considering the fact that we have no benefit from this rebranding rather we have a depreciated goodwill domestically and internationally.

@Alter Ego u r an indiot for sayin UNILAG Is a brand name. It's a school for God's sake not a company. The change of name affects the school standard in no way.ASUU's stand on the matter is just hilarious to me cos it shows how shalllow minded they are,plannin strikes when there are other more important matters they shuld concern themselves with.

All over the world, pple have emotional attachment to schs. some pple went to a particular sch cos of its name and believed prestige.Thats why u see some pple pasting the sticker of a sch on their cars or homes, etc.Imagine changing kings college to another name, or Ui or Unijos, oxford etc.You dont just tamper with pple's emotion any how. We should stop changing sch name expecially schs in existence over years. If we need to immotalize pple lets look for other natinal assets not sch.

What is in a name, the protesting students should go back to school that their parents and guardians has paid a lot to get them into rather than been on the street protesting the change of thier school name. If i may ask, did the students choose the university for the name or to get certificates that will enable forge ahead in lif?

GEJ I was watching some of your interviews on youtube and I must say you sound rather dull. They ask you a simple question about Boko Haram and you go ranting some animal proverb. Hmnnn....!Anywayz, you DO NOT change the name of someone's school like that. IT is part of the whole package when students decide to go to a school. Let me guess Jona your kids are all abroad studying so you dont give a shit. I do cos I went to Unilag for 2 years before I moved to the US and I am pissed. GEJ you better do the right thing and stop acting like a bush man.
