[quotation] 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.
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.
University of Ibadan was there before Nigeria became sovereign. University of Nigeria, Nsukka is the first University under the sovereign Nigeria.
Those of you that went to UNN, Nsukka, get ready to redo your CVs. Hopefully, your former school will be renamed to Queen Elizabeth University of Nigeria. I congratulate you on this remarkable progress. [/quotation]
