The road network in the land is being opened just as perimeter fencing has commenced. The Vice-Chancellor, Rt. Rev.Professor Dapo F. Asaju, said the survey plan has been handed over to the University, and that the process of getting the Certificate of Occupancy from the appropriate authorities will commence shortly.

On that day the Bursar, Pastor Samson Olojede, handed a cheque of N10m to Oba Taiwo, being the first tranche of the N33.95 million total value of the land. the Vice-Chancellor told the University Senate at its meeting held on Thursday, December 19, 2019 that the Faculty of Agriculture will be domiciled thereafter the National Universities Commission(NUC) gives a nod for the University to Mount programmes in Agriculture.
