FUNAAB Graduate Receives NYSC Award

A graduate from the University's Department of Plant Breeding and Seed Technology, College of Plant Science and Crop Production (COLPLANT), Mr. Azeez Salawu, has bagged the 2017 Federal Capital Territory (FCT) State Honours Award, as “the most outstanding National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member in the FCT, Abuja”. Azeez was awarded for his meritorious service to his country and the host community during his NYSC programme.

According to Azeez, a 2015 graduate of the University, who served with the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) Kubwa, Abuja  under the Agricultural Transformation Agenda Support Programme, Phase One (ATASP-1) project, during his Service Year, participated actively in all his Platoon activities and also joined the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) training, which was led by SDGs advocates from the United Nations, where he presented a paper  on how it was possible for SDGs to achieve its goal of ‘No Poverty’ and ‘Zero Hunger’, through the Aggressive Involvement of Youths in Agriculture, as part of the Transformation Agenda of the Federal Government. The former student of FUNAAB, stated that he had succeeded in putting in practical, the project during his tenure as the SDGs Agro-Allied Sub group President and was able to lead his colleagues to initiate and champion the projects, which included a visit to the Peygi Internally-Displaced Persons (IDPs) settlement maize farmland in Kuje Area Council, where his group taught the IDP farmers on the importance of agriculture and how to maintain and also make good yields on their maize farms; motivated his Community Development Service (CDS) group to visit Ushafa farmers in the Bwari Area Council, FCT, where they sensitised the farmers on how to make good use of fertilizers for increased yield and optimum productivity; as well as assisted Ushafa farmers that complained about their inability to access fertilizers, to link up with the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development Co-operative Society, making them to have easy access to fertilizers, through the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD) Co-operative society, while  the CDS group also donated some bags of NPK fertilizers to the farmers.

Other activities embarked upon by the alumnus of the University included championing the movement of his CDS group to acquire five hectares of farmland from the NYSC Kwali farmland for the SDGs Agro-Allied CDS; acquired two demonstration vegetable farmland in Government Secondary School, Jabi and Government Secondary School, Gwarimpa, where the CDS group trained the JSS students on the theory and practical demonstration of land preparation and management for vegetable production; served as an advocate of SDGs in the mandatory SDGs training for 40 secondary school students from Government Secondary School Jabi;  and also initiated his CDS Group to the International Institute of Agriculture (IITA), to train the IITA Youth Agriprenuers on Agribusiness and Sustainability, among others.

For the University, the alumnus recommended that "the University Management should also key into the 2030 Agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with  more focus on the 1st and 2nd Global goals, through various sensitisation programmes, capacity building and training by partnering with the various international organisations like the United Nations (UN), European Union (EU), United States Agency for International Development (USAID), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (UNFAO), IITA, AfricaRice and African Development Bank (AfDB), among others, to end hunger and eradicate poverty in Africa.

Azeez, who had served in various capacities during his undergraduate days, such as President, Plant Breeding and Seed Technology Students Association; Public Relations Officer, FUNAAB Students Union Government; Ag. Public Relations Officer, National Association of Nigerian Students, Ogun State Chapter; Public Relations Officer, Plant Breeding and Seed Technology Students Association; Member, University Electricity Monitoring Committee in FUNAAB, headed by the Dean of Student Affairs; and Publicity Secretary, ‘FUNAABSUG at 25 Commemorative’ Programme, called on the University Management, to ensure that student union elections were held, very soon.

Nigeria Remains Agricultural Power House, Says Don

With a vast 84 million hectares of arable land, 279 billion cubic meters of surface water and an estimated current population of 165 million people that is projected to reach 470 million by 2050, Nigeria has been described as an untapped potential agricultural power house.

The Provost, Federal College of Agriculture, Akure, Ondo State, Dr. Samson Odedina, disclosed this during the lecture titled, “Agricultural Value Chain Job Opportunities: Success Stories Among Youths in Nigeria”, at the Investiture Ceremony of Award of Excellence in Food Sustainability, conferred on the Director, Grants Management (DGM), Professor Kolawole Adebayo by the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Ogun State Chapter.  He said that there was huge investment opportunity for import substitution as Nigeria imports over US$11 billion in wheat, rice, sugar and fish every year. According to him, “Import dependency is hurting Nigerian farmers, displacing local production and creating rising unemployment”.

Commenting on the targets for agricultural transformation in the country, he said 3.5 million jobs could be created within agricultural value chains, while describing value chains as full range of activities, which were required to bring a product or service from conception, all through the different phases of production. He disclosed the huge opportunities were inherent in some agricultural products such as cassava in terms of stem production, weed control, root production, bulking agency, transport services, primary processing, value addition and product development like starch, flour, confectioneries, bread, glue, beer as well as marketing. He added that opportunities in aquaculture could also be exploited through fingerlings production, feed production, processing, value addition, product development as well as marketing. Dr. Odedina noted that cocoa could be taken advantage of, in the aspects of seedling production, weed control, pest and diseases control services, bulking agency, processing, value addition, product development and marketing.

The Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ololade Enikuomehin, said that the event was a laudable one as it was meant to celebrate excellence and create a platform for motivation. “As a University, we believe in oneness. We believe in celebrating people that has made their mark and made it possible for others to be motivated. I want to thank the National Youth Council of Nigeria; Ogun State Chapter, for finding it fit to honour us as a University, as personified by Professor Kolawole Adebayo. He is a typical FUNAABite, having acquired all his relevant degrees in FUNAAB”, the Acting Vice-Chancellor added.

While advising Nigerian youths, the Acting Vice-Chancellor enjoined them to be resolute, by devoting their energy into changing and doing well in whatever they were billed to do, adding that when the youths spend quality time complaining about situations, they lose out on the opportunities around them. He, therefore, encouraged them to take advantage of the various opportunities in this country, saying that children were still being born everyday, as he expected them to survive, as there was strong hope that they would survive. He stressed that youths should channel their energies towards doing essential things.

The Chairman of NYCN, Ogun State Chapter, Prince Adeleke Adebajo, said that the Council was established by an Act of Parliament in 1964, to coordinate young people towards global standards in the realisation of their full potentials, dreams, aspirations and being responsible to themselves, in addition to contributing positively to the development of their communities and the nation at large. Responding to the award, the Director of DGM, Professor Kolawole Adebayo, appreciated the Council for the laudable gesture, charging others that it was an opportunity to do good things and not expecting a reward back. “I must appreciate those who have spent time building up with me”, he noted. Professor Adebayo said that in the journey of life, people often meet their life partners, as he admonished youths to treat everybody well and remember each other when they get to the top.

 

Classrooms Should Be ICT-Compliant, Says Acting VC

The Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ololade Enikuomehin, has stressed the need for classrooms to be information and communication technology-compliant, in order to meet the needs of lecturers and students, for effective teaching and learning. He made this observation at the 13th Annual Conference and Workshop of the National Association of Teachers and Researchers in English as a Second Language (NATRESL), held recently in FUNAAB.

Speaking on the relationship between ICTs and the teaching of English language, Professor Enikuomehin stated that, "Since English is a global language, it is expected ‎that students, and more importantly, teachers of English, would have adequate competence in its use. Here at FUNAAB, most lecture rooms have multimedia resources for teaching and the University views digital technology as an essential instructional content delivery media for both pedagogical and research purposes. As teachers of English language, these tools must be employed to transform your studen‎ts' learning experiences", he noted. The Acting Vice-Chancellor, who was represented by the Dean, College of Food Science and Human Ecology (COLFHEC), Professor Lateef Sanni, described the conference as "very timely, in that the provision of digital technologies, has become an indispensable communication tool for students and teachers".

Corroborating the Vice-Chancellor, the Conference ‎Convener and NATRESL President, Professor Helen Bodunde, who doubles as the Head, Department of Communication and General Studies, College of Agricultural Management and Rural Development (COLAMRUD) of the University, had declared that NATRESL was premised on the professional development of teachers through research. According to her, "the Association is ready to collaborate or partner with institutions, which are ready to take the bull by the horn, by adding value to the quality of their teachers, as this conference is aimed at changing the educational landscape of Nigeria, for the better". At the occasion, the Leader, Blended Research Group, Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State, Professor Bayo Aborisade, stressed the need to re-engineer English language teaching modes, while urging teachers and researchers, who majored in the language, to embrace the use of modern technologies. Speaking on the theme, "ELT: Innovation, Transformations and Technologies", the Don described technologies as the enabler and driver of change, adding that human beings were entering a stage of self-designed evolution and implored participants at the conference to make use of technologies, to engender fundamental structural changes, increase students’ engagement and motivation, as well as build global citizens with the 21st century skills. According to him, 51 per cent of Nigerians, as at 2015, had access to the Internet and that most people now use smartphones. He noted that this avent of technology, could be intrusive, disruptive or helpful, as he urged experts in the field to tap into the positive side of technologies.

"Artificial intelligence is fast evolving. If care is not taken, robots would take the place of humans in teaching. Therefore, we all have to catch up with the latest technologies. Until we get to this point, we will continue to fail our students", he said. Professor Aborisade advised further that for effective teaching of English language, teachers and researchers should embrace bended learning; mixed classroom learning and online teaching; Open Educational Resources (OERS); Massively Open Online Courses, (MOOC); digital scholarship and flipped classroom; which he described as student-centered, because it allows students to view content before class and it also enables in-class active learning.

 

FUNAAB to Participate in WUG … Staff School Holds Inter-house Competition

Athletes and officials from the University have been selected, as part of the Nigerian contingent to the 29th World University Games (WUG), holding in Taipei, Taiwan, between August 19 and 30, 2017, themed: “University Sports: Globalising and Universalising Participation”. According to the Nigerian University Games Association (NUGA), the decision was taken because “of the University’s role in the development of sports in Nigeria”. The athletes and officials are: Miss. Naomi Oyinloye, a Postgraduate student in the Department of Zoology, College of Biological Sciences (COLBIOS), Female Badminton; Miss. Folashade Adedotun, Department of Chemistry, College of Physical Sciences (COLPHYS), Female Table Tennis; while Dr. Sam Olabanji, Acting Director, Directorate of Sports; is to lead the team from FUNAAB.

It would be recalled that, the University contingents to the recently held 25th NUGA had excelled in the competition that took place at the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue State, by winning 1 Gold, 4 Silver and 8 Bronze medals. For NUGA, the University had over 70 athletes that took part in eight different sports such as Squash, Badminton, Chess, Table Tennis, Tennis, Taekwondo, Athletic and Hockey. The Squash female team won the Gold for the University by defeating the defending champion, University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), in the finals by two straight sets. Prior to the games, the Squash female team of the University recently performed outstandingly during the Squash tournament to commemorate the 80th Birthday celebration of the nation’s former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. Other sports that produced medals for the University were: Badminton, Chess, Table Tennis, Taekwondo and Tennis. The University of Port Harcourt came first at this year’s event followed by Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. Reacting to the University’s results at the games, the Acting Director, Directorate of Sports, Dr. Sam Olabanji, stated that this year’s results was better than the last one, held at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife in 2014. According to him, the athletes were improving and it was a reflection of hardwork and sign of commitment on the part of the coaching crew.

Dr. Olabanji, who has been selected as an official for WUG, suggested that for optimum performance by the coaching crew and the athletes in subsequent games, there was the need for the University Management to grant discretionary admission to some identified and talented athletes, seeking admission into the University, most especially, those that possessed the basic requirements. He noted that the Directorate requires more sporting facilities and equipment, to perform very well in future competitions. He added that the University’s performance at other tournaments could also be enhanced when scholarship awards were given to the Gold medalists, alongside other incentives like financial reward and befitting reception.

He added that letters of commendation could equally be issued to all the members of staff that played one role or the other towards the success of the games. The Acting Director noted that the Directorate needed more coaches as technical staff, to support the present staff on ground, in addition to having a bus, to convey athletes to major events. Meanwhile, it would be recalled that the University emerged 17th position out of the 57 universities that it took part with 1 Gold, 4 Silver and 3 Bronze Medals at the 24th NUGA, held in OAU in 2014 while the 26th edition of the games would be held at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), in 2019.

In another development, Vice-Chancellor House which is Orange House, has emerged top at the just-concluded inter-house sports competition at the FUNAAB Staff School. The Vice-Chancellor’s team pulled a total of 363 points ahead of Bisi Soboyejo House (Blue House) with 357 points and ‘Nimbe Adedipe House (Yellow House) with 333 points, while Julius Okojie House (Green House) came last with a total of 328 points. The keenly-contested game brought a sense of togetherness and unity among the staff and pupils of the School, most especially, as the School is celebrating its 20 years of existence. Expressing her joy during the presentation of trophies to victorious athletes, the Head Teacher of FUNAAB Staff School, Mrs. Florence Alade, said that the School would be looking forward to holding a bigger inter-house sports competition, while thanking God for the success recorded. Mrs. Bukola David-Olaleye, a staff in the school, noted that sport is life, which informed the inter-house sports competition, which is held biennially. However, the game has been on hold since 2013, due to some challenges. Describing sports as part of learning and education, Pastor (Mrs.) Omotayo Obidare, one of the parents present at the event, said the game was interesting and thanked the school management for a well done job.

The duo of Ademola Kajola and Teniola Olajide, two pupils from the School equally expressed happiness at the games because it had brought them together with their friends in other classes. The Chief Host at the occasion and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) of FUNAAB, Professor Oluyemisi Eromosele, who was represented by Mrs. Oluwatoyin Dawodu, the immediate past Head, Senate and Admissions Unit, congratulated FUNAAB Staff School for the efforts put into organising the inter-house sports competition, as she charged them to imbibe the spirit of sportsmanship as they compete in the various games.

 

 

 

 

Make Agriculture Full Business Venture, Says CEADESE Director

For agriculture to become profitable and attractive, farmers have been urged to look beyond subsistence farming and embrace agriculture as a full business. This was the submission of the Director, Centre of Excellence in Agricultural Development and Sustainable Environment (CEADESE) of the University, Professor Okanlawon Onagbesan, at the FADAMA Graduate Unemployment Youths Scheme (FADAMA GUYS) training programme, held recently in the University. According to the Director, who was represented at the training programme by Professor Carolyn Afolami, of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Farm Management, College of Agricultural Management and Rural Development (COLAMRUD), the relevance of agriculture to the sustenance of the nation can no longer be ignored, hence, the need for adequate training of graduates, who are interested in agriculture.
