This Naming Of University After Some People Can Be Funny O! Imagine This... by apeiron24(m): 8:40pm On May 20, 2017
University of Lagos was named Moshud Abiola University Of Lagos and there was a protest. Thanks to God for the success, if not, Some people would be students of MAULAG now..... what an Impertubably Lugubrious pronunciation.

Naming Higher institutions after heroes I not my problem. My Problem is the abbreviation that follows after.....

Imagine Naming University of Ibadan after "Gbadamosi Adeyinka"... which will make it Gbadamosi Adeyinka University......

The abbreviation is "GAU".... which is a bad word situation in Yoruba language.....

..... Jambite would be like "Mo to wo GAU" I have been admitted.....

....Imagine you are in a Church and a Lady is giving testimony about his admission into "GAU"

...She will be like...... help me praise God o.... I just entered GAU......

..... Please our Governments should think about abbreviation o.....

...Anyone here want admission to "GAU"

So when a student is admitted there and I see such a student, this likely conversation will ensue;
Me: Bawo wa ni admission? (How far with your admission)
Boy: Won ma ti mun mi (I have been admitted)
Me: O ku oriire, ni bo? (congrats!, where?)
Boy : Mo ti pada wo GAU ( I have finally been admitted into GAU which is literally translated as "I have finally entered SERIOUS TROUBLE"wink

These are two sites I came across
1. http://learn101.org/yoruba.php
2. http://ilanguages.org/yoruba.php

I know but I'm kinda too busy to go settle in any pure Yoruba environ right now... I'm I guaranteed to learn something if I frequent some Abules here in Lagos or do I have to go down to Ife and her likes?

nah Africa mentality dey worry us

I see no reason why a whole university should be named after someone.. yeah I get it..we have heroes and they deserve to be honoured..but naming a university after someone doesn't mean the person generation are going to attend the university the man family are still going to spend the country money to get their education in another country.. better still name a library after them or theater after them which will make more sense..I wonder why we don't have Abraham Lincoln university or Margret Thatcher university
