One of the Best Agriculturist (Debo Onafowora)  is making wave in the Agriculture Sector in  Nigeria. He shared his Testimony of Success Regarding the ABUAD Moringa Factory project  using his facebook  page.. 
See Below .

Leading the MASSIVE Multi- Million naira ABUAD Moringa Factory project from day1 till now(4 years) has been a Herculean task, but to God alone be all the glory.
Starting with the 100 hectares of Moringa Plantation (which I daresay is the largest in West Africa), to the Factory set-up and then getting NAFDAC certification for seven food and Cosmetic products, processing, packaging, product Launching, Marketing and Distribution, very few people can successfully imagine the scale of the project!
The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, came to the factory, among many other places he visited today in ABUAD and was flabbergasted, to say the least.
I still maintain and re-iterate here that without adding Business to Agriculture, Africa and Nigeria aren't ready to move to the next level.

I also heartily congratulate Aare Afe Babalola (SAN), the president and Founder of ABUAD, for his vision and sacrifice towards redefining education in Africa, especially with a major interest in Agriculture.
My sincere gratitude to all my team members at the factory, especially the dogged and hardworking Prince Oyesanmi.Team work they say, makes the Dream work and they have all, through their support made that a reality.
My advice to other universities in Nigeria and Africa is to learn how to combine Research with Entrepreneurship. This is what ABUAD has done and is still doing.
The good news is that we are still available to offer the right consultation to anyone who wants to join the CHANGE by establishing a Value Chain and Agribusiness focused institution at whatever desired level.
Distributors wanted nation wide....
