The Afe Babalola University in Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD), South-West Nigeria, is incubating what could possibly be the much expected resurgence of Nigeria’s Agrarian fortunes. Founded in 2009, the university prides itself as the first in the West African country to own and run a broad-based commercial farm, which sits on 1,000 hectares of land.
“I know the importance of Agriculture,” says Aare Afe babalola, the institution’s Octogenarian founder and president, who spent his formative years on a farm but is highly regarded globally as a legal luminary. “The unemployment crises we have on our hands today is largely because most youths believe they have to get a white-collar job. I therefore decided that in carrying out a reformation in education, I must give priority to Agriculture.”
