Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State on Friday announced the renaming of the State College of Education, Ihitte-Uboma to late Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu College of Education.

This is just as the Senate President, Ahmed Lawal led 24 other serving senators to the burial of the late Senator, who, until his death on December 19, 2019, was the member representing Imo North Senatorial District.

Uwajumogu’s remains were laid to rest at his country home, Umuiyi in Ihitte-Uboma LGA.

Speaking during the event at the Ihitte Uboma council headquarters, Governor Uzodinma said the renaming of the institution was to immortalize the late shift, who he said fought doggedly to shoot his constituency and Imo in general to political limelight.

Senate President, Ahmed Lawal, in his eulogy described the late Senator as a peaceful, committed and reliable legislator who catered for his people without any fear or favour.
