KWASU Launches Initiative to Ensure Food Sufficiency

The Vice Chancellor of the Kwara State University, Malete, Prof. Muhammad Akanbi, has announced plans to ensure food sufficiency in the state.

While disclosing this on Tuesday June 2, 2020, Prof Akanbi stated that the institution would help Kwara State and Nigeria become self sufficient in food production.

He noted that the university would ensure massive planting of grains, especially maize in its Baruten and Ekiti campuses in addition to the Faculty of Agriculture’s demonstration farms in the main campus.

“Our universities must be big players in ensuring food sufficiency in the country. We have established KWASU Investments and Consultancy unit. This is with the mandate to ensure that our institution becomes a big player in agro-allied business.

“We have land and the expertise. We shall be producing day-old chicks. Also, we want to plant maize en- masse in our Baruten and Ekiti campuses. We shall give out lands to the people to farm while our agriculture faculty will offer the farmers technical assistance,” the VC said.

Prof Akanbi also pledged to improve on the development he met on ground with a view to making the university a world class.
