THE GOWN GOES TO TOWN

        The Linkage Program, Environmental Research and Development Directorate (LIPERD), has once again in fulfillment of its mandate and the social responsibility of the University engaged the local farmers forum in an enlightenment campaign.

In an interactive session held in Oye at the secretariat of the farmers forum Oye-Ekiti on the 2nd of June 2016, the LIPERD  staff enlightened the farmers on how they could benefit from the wealth of experience of the seasoned lecturers in the University's faculty of Agric . The spokes person for the Directorate, who was coincidentally an indigene of the community spoke in the local dialect and in plain words, told the farmers of the various ways they could benefit from the University.
