In the spirit of non-partisanship, the PDP governor of Oyo state has renamed the First Tech University after the late APC governor, Abiola Ajimobi. The governor announced the name change at the 2nd convocation of the school and posted this on his social media page. He wrote:
‘This morning, we attended the second convocation ceremony of the First Technical University, Ibadan. I congratulated all graduands of the university and urged them to be good ambassadors of Tech-U and Oyo State as they move to the next phase of their lives.
I also announced that we have made the decision to rename the university the Abiola Ajimobi First Technical University in honour of my predecessor who established the university.’
