Only About 3500 Students will be Admitted in FUNAAB
About 12,500 candidates participated in this year’s Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) Screening Exercise, conducted by the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB).
The Director of Academic Planning, Prof. Olukayode Akinyemi, while reviewing the exercise, commended the efforts of the Federal Government in bench-marking the admission process, because it would allow many prospective students to have access to other levels of higher education such as the Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.
He stated that it was imperative for Universities to have their own bench-marks, to maintain high standards. He noted that there were still other ways of screening-out candidates with bad characters even though they might have met the basic academic requirements in the interest of the system.
Prof. Akinyemi, however, advised candidates who could not be admitted into FUNAAB not to be discouraged as there were other institutions that could still admit them, because for now, FUNAAB could only admit about 3,500 applicants.
Also speaking, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Professor Adekojo Waheed, said the exercise was a huge success in a bid to getting the best candidates for the University. He likened the candidates to raw materials that any company would need before manufacturing its products.
Prof. Waheed added that the University was not prepared to start training and re-training half-baked candidates when admitted, as this could lead to a draw-back in attaining the set objectives of FUNAAB.
While comparing the screening exercise with those of previous years, Prof. Waheed listed the improvement recorded to include the adoption of finger-print screening and biometrics by every candidate before being allowed to sit for the examination.
He said this was made possible because every candidate’s data had been domiciled with the University with the relevant information, to guard against impersonation.
In addition, he noted that candidates were not allowed within the screening premises, to use their mobile phones, electronic devices, bags and luggage as part of preventive measures against cheating.
The Chairperson, Admissions Committee of the University, Professor Oluyemisi Eromosele, also gave a pass-mark to the exercise.
She described it as highly successful as everything went on fine as scheduled in terms of logistics.
Prof. Eromosele, who doubles as the Dean, College of Physical Sciences (COLPHYS), re-iterated the commitment of FUNAAB at encouraging students to study agriculture-related courses, when compared with other programmes run by the University.

The Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Ogun State (FUNAAB) was established on 1 January 1988 by the Federal Government when four Universities of Technology, earlier merged in 1984, were demerged. This led to the creation of the first two Universities of Agriculture in Abeokuta and Makurdi.
On the same date, Professor Nurudeen Olorun-Nimbe Adedipe was appointed the pioneer Vice-Chancellor of the University. Professor Adedipe officially assumed duty on 28 January 1988. For many years the date which Professor Adedipe assumed duty was wrongly adopted as the foundation day of the University. Following a revisit to the instrument setting up the University, a Council decision at its 53rd Statutory meeting in June 2010 reverted the foundation date to 1 January 1988 as prescribed by the law which established the University.
Prior to the emergence of FUNAAB, the Federal Government had established the Federal University of Technology, Abeokuta (FUTAB) in 1983. Then, in 1984, it was merged with the University of Lagos and had its name changed to the College of Science and Technology, Abeokuta (COSTAB), before the demerger of January, 1988.
The University started off from the old Campus of Abeokuta Grammar School, Isale-Igbein near the city centre. It completed its movement to its Permanent Site along Alabata Road in 1997, in what has been termed the fastest pace of Permanent Site development in the history of Nigerian University System.
