Adamu Garba asks FG to rename University of Nigeria, Nsukka after Queen Elizabeth II

A former presidential aspirant Adamu Garba has suggested that the late Queen Elizabeth II should be honoured by renaming the university of Nigeria, Nsukka after her name to immortalise her.

Garba in a series of tweets, urged for the immortalisation of the late Queen. He also added that he will declare three days of National mourning for the Queen, if he was the President.

He wrote, “If I’m the President of Nigeria today, I’ll declare 3 days of National Mourning for the death of The Queen Elizabeth II of England.”

“Immortalizing Queen Elizabeth by renaming the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in her honor would’ve been an easier deal if I were communicating with our grandparents. Fortunately, they knew her worth.

“Age is a grace, & 7 decades on the Throne can only be the work of God and Grace".

“In order to immortalize Queen Elizabeth, we should rename the University of Nigeria, Nsukka to Queen Elizabeth University of Nigeria since it is the first University in Nigeria."
