In keeping with the resolve of the Executive Director, Dr. Patrick Adebola to stamp out power outages, water scarcity, poor research facilities and security threats in the Institute, brand new 250KVA Perkins Generator, Borehole, and Ultramodern Central Laboratory has been put in place in the Institute, while the progress is being made on perimeter fencing. The installed generator, which is the best of its kind, would power all the offices at the Central Administrative Block, Soil and Plant Nutrition (SPN) Division, Extension and Economics Department, Library, Information and Documentation Department as well as all the laboratory equipment in the Institute. In his submission, the Head of Engineering and Works Division, Engr. Taiwo Bakare, who could not hide his excitement on the new wave of infrastructural transformations, explained that the old 250 KVA generator replaced by the newly installed unit would be deployed to power Plantation and Estate Management (PEM) Division, Engineering and Works Division, Security Unit and Technical Officers (TO) Quarters. Furthermore, borehole, which is one amongst others, has been installed at Engineering and Works/PEM to tackle water scarcity at the Divisions as well as TO Quarters. The perimeter fencing, which has covered over 3 kilometer of the Institute confine, is ongoing; which when completed will improve the security situation of the Institute.
