On the 14th June, 2018, the Secretary, Board of Regents (BOR) of Landmark University, Barrister Temidayo Eseyin, on behalf of the Chancellor, Dr David Oyedepo, commissioned the LMU Farm Products Sale’s Outlet at the Old Midland Store, Ilorin. This initiative, is a way of making the impact of the University’s Agrarian Revolution Mandate felt by Ilorin community and environs, and especially towards combating food insecurity.
During the commissioning, the BOR Secretary noted that the essence of opening Ilorin sales outlet was to further reach out to a larger population. “Until people feel your impact, whatever you are doing is theory. What we are doing today is making the impact of the agrarian revolution felt.
LMU is just starting and we will make more progress.” While encouraging the management not to despise days of little beginning, he further stated that the vision of the University is much bigger than what is currently being seen.
He said the products from the University will soon be seen nationwide and world over. He thanked the Management and the Farm Consultant for making the day a reality.
During his welcome address at the commissioning, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju noted that LMU is committed to the agrarian mandate which is better demonstrated beyond feeding immediate community to making available the quality products from LMU Farms to the large market.
“The choice of this location was informed by the popular demand for our products following a few occasions of our sales outreaches in Ilorin. Besides, this move will serve to bring our products closer to some of our customers in and around Ilorin metropolis.
We can guarantee steady supply of products to our customers across the nation through this outlet as even more of this will be opened to meet the growing demand of our products.
“One thing among others that distinguish us as a people is our quest for excellence, as being resonated in our academic, research, and agripreneurial output. Our uncompromising stance for quality assurance and global best practice continues to give us competitive advantage.
Credit is humbly given to our dear Chancellor, Dr. David Oyedepo, at this juncture, for his ceaseless support and inspiring charge that keep us forging ahead towards actualizing the agrarian vision of the University.”
He added that LMU community has a firm resolution to give optimal satisfaction to customers, as the institution has not only what it takes to be in business but also to be on the lead excellently, epitomizing the proprietor base.
The Farm Consultant, Pastor Debo Onafowora reitrated1 that the opening of the Sales Outlet is to capture Ilorin metropolis, which according to him would open bigger opportunity for the Farm.
He also noted that the outlet would be in full operation 7 days a week as quality fresh products such as Eggs, Garri, Fufu, Rice, Elubo-Lafun, Cassava and Plantain Flour, Chicken, Smoked Fish, Gizzards and many more are available for sales.
