The Provost of the College of Animal Health and Production Technology, Dr. Olufunmilayo Adejinmi, has called on the Federal Government to pay more attention to agricultural researches and training institutes if its economic diversification policy to agric sector is to be successful.

Adejinmi spoke during the institution’s 2017 matriculation ceremony, where he expressed disappointment that the school could only admit 482 students for its new session.

He also called on the government to come up with a policy that would make the procedure for admission into tertiary schools to favour agric-based institutions.

According to the provost, the 2017 admission procedure was not favourable to agric institutions because the cut-off mark constituted a hurdle for those wishing to attend the school.

Adejinmi said, “For a country that is willing to diversify to agriculture away from its mono-economic status, the government must give attention to agric schools where future farmers will be trained.”
