National Assembly upgrades Adeyemi College of Education to varsity
On Wednesday, the National Assembly approved legislation to transform Adeyemi College of Education into a full-fledged university.
The Senate agreed to the House of Representatives’ bill, which had previously been passed in the Green Chamber.
After the Senate approved the measure for the third reading, the university would be named Adeyemi Federal University of Education, Ondo.
The law, according to Senate President Ahmad Lawan, abolished the Act that created Adeyemi College of Education and re-enacted a new one for the formation of Adeyemi Federal College of Education.
The Bill for the Improvement of the First College of Education was enacted by the Eighth National Assembly, but the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd. ), refused to sign it.
