Former presidential candidate Adamu Garba has proposed renaming University of Nigeria, Nsukka, after the late British Queen Elizabeth II in order to honor her.
Garba argued for the late Queen’s immortalization in a series of tweets. In addition, he said that if he was to be President, he declare three days of national mourning for the Queen.
His tweet reads: “If I’m the President of Nigeria today, I’ll declare three days of national mourning for the death of The Queen Elizabeth II of England.
“Immortalizing Queen Elizabeth by renaming the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in her honor would’ve been an easier deal if I were communicating with our grandparents. Fortunately, they knew her worth.
“Age is a grace & 7 decades on the throne can only be the work of God and Grace.
“In order to immortalize Queen Elizabeth, we should rename the University of Nigeria, Nsukka to Queen Elizabeth University of Nigeria since it is the first University in Nigeria.”
