The National Assembly of Nigeria on Wednesday passed a bill to upgrade Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo State, to a university.
The development followed the agreement of the Senate to the House of Representatives Bill which was earlier passed at the lower chamber.
Hence, the learning institute will be known as Adeyemi Federal University of Education, Ondo, after the Senate passed the bill for third reading.
Ahmad Lawan, the President of the Senate, made the confirmation today (Wednesday).
Adeyemi College of Education is affiliated to Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) for its degree programmes. The school was named after Canon M. C. Adeyemi (one of the earliest educationists in Yorubaland) in recognition of his contribution to educational development in then Ondo Province.
