Welcome note from the Dean

Professor S.O.Bada

Greetings, it is a joy and privilege for me to welcome you to the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry, University of Ibadan, which is the oldest of its type in Nigeria. The Faculty has certainly come of age after 58 years of continuous service in the area of teaching; research; training and community service. While welcoming our retuning students, I congratulate the new entrants for making it to the University of Ibadan; Nigeria’s premier university. The Faculty offers robust academic programmes in agriculture; forestry; wildlife and fisheries Management at the undergraduate and post graduate levels.

The recently reviewed curricula which came to effect in 2005/2006 were to re-engineer our course delivery in tandem with emerging global realities. This would enable us to produce graduate who are at par with their peers form any other part of the world. Hitherto, the Faculty operated above the minimum academic standards of the National Universities Commission. The new curricular would even further raise the standard of our programmes beyond the next level. The University, on its part had striven to normalize the academic calendar which had been a victim of incessant industrial crises. It is therefore hoped that our student could hence forth meaningfully complete their training programmes within the stipulated periods.The Faculty is endowed with a corps of experts in the diverse areas of its mandate. I therefore encourage the students to take good advantage of this and acquire the requisite knowledge and skills during their studentship. It is hoped that many of our grandaunts would be job creators and employers of labor rather than job seekers. These however, calls for clear focus; hard work, dedication honesty of purpose. I wish you all the best in your pursuit of academic excellence.

Thank you and God bless

Prof. S.O. Bada
Dean, Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry
