As part of the pre convocation activities to herald the University’s 27th Convocation Ceremony, the University General Studies Unit (GES) held an Agricultural and Engineering show for students, traders, farmers, entrepreneurs, professionals and manufacturers.
The event which took place at the Open Field, opposite the University ICT Building was declared open on the 23rd January, 2018 by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ganiyu Olatunji Olatunde.
In his opening address, Professor Olatunde urged the participants to make it a duty to be present at the exhibition on an annual basis. He said this avenue would give them the opportunity to market their wares at affordable prices.
Professor Olatunde challenged them to come up with great incentives and unique products that will add values to life and the society. He advised that the mission behind the exhibition was to give opportunities to upcoming entrepreneurs to display their goods and products by introducing them into the market via the University Community.
He said that the General Entrepreneurial Studies Unit was established to teach the practical aspects of entrepreneurial studies and also contribute immensely to the agricultural hub of its immediate environment by planting and investing in production and rearing of animals that would be sold to make money for the University and also make the students independent after their school life.
He saluted the Entrepreneurial Unit for contributing to the food basket of its immediate environment. By: Niyi Oduwole
