Kogi State University also known as Prince Abubakar Audu University, PAAU, is a state-owned varsity founded in 1999 and has weathered through the storms of serial political transitions, some of which saw attempts to revive the ailing aspects of the school, others were lackadaisical in the revamping approach.

I’m a 500 level Agricultural student from the department of Crop Production, and also the Team leader of Enactus Kogi State University.

At first, I thought it was not possible because I was on the field with 8 Men but in the long run, I started seeing the possibilities and kept pushing the struggle.
