Reports had quoted the new Chairman of the Governing Council, University of Lagos, Prof. Jerry Gana, as saying President Goodluck Jonathan had changed his mind about renaming the institution after the late Chief Moshood Abiola.

But the Director of Press, Federal Ministry of Education, Mr. Olu Lipede, told our correspondent in Abuja on Friday that the President had yet to issue any statement on the matter, noting that the position of the government about the name change remains.

He said, “The reports that the government has made a U-turn on the renaming of UNILAG are untrue and misleading; what Prof. Jerry Gana said was that the President was observing the rule of law by not forcing his decision to change the name of the university on the people, but followed the due process by allowing the court to decide the matter.

“The President has not issued any categorical statement on the matter and the ministry of education has not received any directive either; so, the directive of the President on the school remains the same.”
