Former president Goodluck Jonathan had renamed the University of Lagos ( Unilag), Moshood Abiola University of Lagos(MAULAG) to immortalize the late MKO but the decision met a stiff protest.

Many Nigerians especially past and present students of the school blatantly kicked against the move to change the name of the institution.

There were protests everywhere and the decision was rescinded a few days after.

However, President Muhammadu Buhari in the course of the June 12, Democracy Day celebration in Abuja on Wednesday declared that the National stadium in Abuja will henceforth be known as the Moshood Abiola Stadium.
