The National Assembly on Wednesday passed a bill to upgrade Adeyemi College of Education to a full-fledged university.
The development followed the concurrence of the Senate to the House of Representatives Bill which was earlier passed at the Green Chamber.
The institution will now be known as Adeyemi Federal University of Education, Ondo after the Senate passed the bill for third reading.
The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan said the bill has repealed the Act that established Adeyemi College of Education and re-enacted a new one for the establishment of the Adeyemi Federal College of Education.
The Bill for the upgrade of the foremost college of Education was passed in the Eight National Assembly but the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), declined assent to it.
