FUNAAB Students Renovate Faded Roadmap
THE executive of the Nigerian Association of Agricultural Students (NAAS) of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Ogun State, has renovated the institution’s Roadmap located at the University Ceremonial Road.
According to its President, Adekunle Adeoye, a 300-level student of Animal Physiology, College of Animal Science and Livestock Production (COLANIM), the feat is part of the electoral promises of the 2014/2015 executive body, adding that the roadmap, originally constructed by the 2008/2009 executive of the Association, had since faded.
“We want to start a capital project for the Association, so we looked around for what will be of benefit to the university, then we thought of the faded roadmap, which was earlier constructed in 2009 by our predecessors,” he stated, while appreciating the Directorate of Physical Planning for its support in the re-construction work.
Adeoye, however, said the project cost them N47, 000, which was sourced through external assistance and dues levied on members. He said upon completion, the project was appreciated by members of NAAS, as the re-construction plan was part of the proposal presented on assumption of office.
He listed other projects carried out during his tenure to include the construction of 10 concrete benches on the practical site in the Directorate of University Farms (DUFARMS), publication of NAAS magazine, which was distributed to students free, and the implementation of empowerment and orientation programmes for members, among others.
