Faculty Of Agric. Students Demand Improved Operations of the School Farm



Today, The Sahel Scholar's Conference aimed at introducing students to opportunities in the agribusiness landscape, steps for becoming agripreneurs and building successful careers in the sector was held at the Conference Centre, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife on July 17, 2018.

The event which started by 9am had in attendance Ndidi Nwuneli (Managing Partner, Sahel Consulting), Adedeji Adebusoye (Vice President, Sahel Capital), Prof. D.J. Oyedele (Dean, Faculty of Agriculture) and HODs of various department amidst students from various faculties.

However,during the conference, over 250 Agric students unanimously made their demands known on the epileptic system of operation in the Teaching & Research Farm. The students took the opportunity to express their grievances as regards the pathetic state of the School Farm.

One of the participants who pleaded anonymous, said "Internship students go to farm daily to cultivate. They harvest and sell these products and submit the money to the farm. The current I.T students were told to construct and stock a fish pond and buy feeds, all for a cost around #300,000, knowing the current economic challenges in the country, yet the returns will go to the farm. The faculty needs to be considerate. The farm also needs to be mechanized and equipped". This statement was loudly supported by the students present.

However, the Dean, in his statement assured the students that efforts have been put in place to look into that.

The Sahel Scholar's Conference is the second annual edition of which OAU is a beneficiary. One of the organizers told students that 60 best students in the Faculty of Agriculture will be chosen for a paid Internship program and a year Scholarship award.

Some of the students who spoke with our correspondent said, "We've had several events like this, but implementation is often the problem. We hope this will be different.".

Olabode Adetoyi (CEO, Hi-Nutrients International Ltd.)  took turn to share his adventure in the entrepreneurial journey. He urged the students to be disciplined, purposeful, persistent and maximize the social media effectively.

He also took time to personally interact with some students after the photo session.

  1. Education in agriculture is necessary to make the economic system of the country strong by increasing the productivity. In our society, people take the education of this for granted because they don't have enough knowledge about it and visit bestessay com for the best info. There should be proper universities and seminars to promote this education.
