As reactions continue to trail President Gooodluck Jonathan's announcement on the re-naming of the  University of Lagos (UNILAG), in honour of the late Chief M.K.O. Abiola, senators have beared their minds on the matter.

Senator Adegbenga Kaka representing Ogun East senatorial district took a swipe at Federal Government for reducing Late Moshood Abiola to a regional leader noting that late Abiola fought for the political emancipation of entire Nigerians and not only the South-West.

He said that a monument in Abuja being the center of unity should have been named in honour of the late June 12 1993  
hero and not the University of Lagos.

Speaking in the same vein, Senator Mudashiru Husain from Osun west, though commended the President for the honour done to late Abiola, he however suggested that a place like the National Stadium or the University of Abuja should have been named in honour of late Abiola.

He stressed that it is not too late for the President to make amend just as he did during the fuel subsidy removal saga.

Senator Kabiru Gaya from Kano South Senatorial district however praised President Jonathan for doing what his predecessors failed to do saying that the choice of UNILAG was in order since it is a Federal Institution.
