The National President of the Ahmadu Bello University Alumni Association,  Dr. Ahmed Tijani Mora, last weekend, said the institution has done well in the development of agriculture in the northern part of the country in particular and Nigeria in general.
Dr. Mora, who stated this at the end the association’s first general meeting in Zaria, said ABU has helped in the areas of researches and innovations in the agriculture sector of the economy.
‘’The institution has helped in the area of animal husbandry, livestock and most especially agricultural extension services, which provide opportunity for qualified agriculturists to give expert advice to the farmers about their farming activities,’’ he said.
Mora said the institution had established agric centres in Kabba, Bakura, Zamaru, Jebba, Vom and other places for usage by relevant stakeholders, assuring that it will not relent in such services to farmers and other stakeholders in the agricultural sector.
The association’s national president also stated that the institution’s Faculty of Agriculture will be organising a week long home coming for graduates of the faculty.
He said the institution would also use the opportunity to brainstorm on the prospects of agriculture in the present Nigeria and how it would be embraced by all and sundry for the growth of the nation’s economy.
On the free breakfast being planned by the institution’s management for the students, Mora said such gesture would go a long way to assist the students, especially the less privileged ones economically and urged all stakeholders in the university’s environment to support the initiative.
