Description

The Federal University of AgricultureAbeokutaOgun State (FUNAAB) was established on January 1, 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 UniversityProfessor Adedipe officially assumed duty on January 28, 1988. For many years the date on 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 January 1st, 1988 as prescribed by the law which established the University.

Prior to the emergence of UNAAB, the Federal Government had established the Federal University of TechnologyAbeokuta (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 TechnologyAbeokuta (COSTAB), before the demerger of January 1988.

The University started off from the old Campus of Abeokuta Grammar School, Isale-Igbein near the city center. 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 the Nigerian University System.
