Why I supported naming of Ondo Varsity Senate Building after Mimiko

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu said he wholeheartedly supported the naming of the Senate building of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko after former Governor Olusegun Mimiko because of his contribution to the university

Akeredolu spoke at the 9th convocation ceremony of the university on Friday.

He said he didn’t turn down the request to name the senate building after Mimiko because he built the edifice.

He said, “I wholeheartedly acceded to the request made by the outgoing Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Igbekele Ajibefun when he informed me that he wants to name the university after Mimiko.

‘I didn’t turn down request because Mimiko built the senate building and he refused to name it after himself”.
