The Animal Science Students’ Association of Nigeria, University of Ibadan chapter, has given an award of excellence to the Chief Executive Officer, Wonderful Springboard Farms,Abiodun Michael Abiola.

According to the association, the award was in appreciation of his contribution towards agricultural development in Nigeria.

The award was presented to him during the annual lecture of the association with the theme: “Animal Science: Tool For The 8th Sustainable Development Goal,” held at the Department of Animal Science, University of Ibadan recently.

Speaking on the reason the association honoured Abiola, President of the association, Moses Eseola said: “Mr Michael Abiola has been a father to us, for instance I spent 11 months on his farm as an intern. He has imparted to me and many of my colleagues too.

“Aside from that, his role in the development of agriculture in Nigeria cannot really be quantified. So, these are some of the reasons we feel we should honour him to appreciate all he has been doing and to also encourage him to do more.”

While reacting, Michael Abiola,said:”I feel highly elated, highly honoured and I am happy to be in the midst of people I love. It also tells me that hardwork pays. I want to also use this opportunity to tell the students to remain focused, take their destiny in their hands and I assure them that sky will be their starting point.”
