The 100 graduate youths and women who were recently trained in various Agricultural practices at the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, have lauded the quality of teaching and learning aids available at the Institution.
The trainees gave the commendation through their spokesman, Omotayo Adaniken, who described the teaching facilities of the University as superb.
He said the knowledge imparted convinced him to take Agriculture as a worthwhile and commercially viable venture.
The two-week practical-oriented training was part of the Federal Government of Nigeria and World Bank FADAMA III Project aimed at raising a new generation of Agripreneurs.
The trainees were practically taught and trained on Livestock rearing, Fishery, Poultry, Feed Management, Rabbit rearing, Piggery, vegetable farming, and other allied agricultural practices.
Adaniken lauded the quality of accommodation provided, and the hands-on approach adopted by the lecturers, adding that the training has erased their fears about the commercial viability of farming.
Meanwhile, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Igbekele Ajibefun, at the closing ceremony of the two-week exercise, advised the trainees to put what they have been taught to immediate practice.
Ajibefun said, “Agriculture is the way to go for Nigeria to get out of its current economic challenges I, therefore, urge you to take this venture seriously.”
