The Oyo State House of Assembly is set to repeal the law establishing the First Technical University, Ibadan.

This is to reflect the recent change in the name of the University by Governor Seyi Makinde to Abiola Ajimobi First Technical University, Ibadan.

The repeal was contained in a letter forwarded to the House by Governor Seyi Makinde and read at plenary on Tuesday by the Speaker, Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin.

The letter reads ” This administration has observed the need to repeal the First Technical University, Ibadan, Oyo State Law, 2021 and enact a new law to reflect the University’s well deserved renaming from First Technical University, Ibadan to Abiola Ajimobi First Technical University, Ibadan. This is also to ensure its governance structures are in line with other State owned Institutions.”

Recall that the First Technical University, Ibadan was established by late Governor Abiola Ajimobi in 2017.
