After much efforts by indigenes of Ondo Town and others in the state, the National Assembly has finally given the nod for the upgrading of one of the foremost institutions of higher learning in the state, Adeyemi College of Education to a University status.
It would henceforth be known as the ” Adeyemi Federal University of Education, Ondo “.
The upgrading was sequel to the concurrence between both houses of the National Assembly.
The bill was titled: “Adeyemi Federal University of Education, Ondo (Establisment) Bill, 2020.”
The concurrence was read by the Senate Leader, Senator Abdullahi Yayaha.
It would be recalled that the upgrading of the institution was passed by the eighth Senate, but President Muhammadu Buhari declined assent to the bill.
The institution had been an affiliate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife.
