The African Cassava Agronomy Initiative donated laptop computers to four master’s students and one PhD candidate all of whom are beneficiaries of the ACAI scholarship program in partnership with The Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, FUNAAB. The five students; Thanni Bolaji, Blessing Afolake, Adebayo Emmanuel, Akinsumbo Yinka and Ologunde Hammed are pursuing their post graduate degrees at FUUNAB school of Plant Science and Crop Production. Rebecca Oiza Enesi from ACAI presented the computers to the students on behalf of ACAI, at the FUNAAB campus in Abeokuta on August 2, 2017 in the presence of Professor Felix Kolawole Salako, ACAI activities coordinator in the South West of Nigeria through FUNAAB.
Prof Salako lauded the gesture by ACAI terming it a critical logistical support that will augment student’s research work.
“This is the kind of support that will inspire commitment from the students and enhance their capabilities in delivering on their results.” Prof Salako
The move is part of the ACAI partnerships with Nation Agricultural Research organizations in capacity building and promoting agronomy at scale.
