The Ohanaeze Ndigbo has fired back at the former presidential aspirant, Adamu Garba, who said on social media some hours ago that the government should rename the University of Nigeria Nsukka to the name of Queen Elizabeth II, who just died.
However, when the Secretary-General of the Igbo group, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, was reacting to this, according to the daily post, he made it known that the South East had already dedicated a hospital to the late Queen of England.
The Federal Medical Centre, Umuahia, was already named after the late British Monarch.
The hospital was known as the Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre, Umuahia.
However, there is nothing like that in the north. No building in the north was named after the late Queen Elizabeth. The northerners should do that instead of tampering with the University of Nigeria.
The Nigerian government should compensate for the role that Queen Elizabeth played in how the country became independent by renaming the government house in Abuja known as Aso Rock after Queen Elizabeth, because that would be the best way to compensate for her contribution to Nigeria.
