Unilag gets to keep its name, at least for now. The Federal High court under Justice Stephen Adah, has granted an injunction; an interim order stopping the change of name of Unilag, at least for now.

The court has however warned the differing parties to harmonise their case under one suit and adjourned the case till July 4. The defendants named are; UNILAG, the UNILAG Governing Council, the UNILAG Senate, the Attorney-General of the Federation and the National Assembly, Channels TV reports.

The basically lies on the idea that the motion should have been brought before the National Assembly before being announced on Democracy day.

President Jonathan however stated that he had carried out the change by the letter of the law and students were too young to understand the importance of Moshood Abiola in Nigeria's historical context. Imagine?
