The visitors watched a short video to introduce them to IITA and some of its research.
Stating the purpose of the visit, the AIG said: “Having heard a lot about IITA, I came to see the wonders that are being done here, and to know how the police and security personnel here have been doing in providing security for the staff and property within the Institute and beyond.”
Oshodi-Glover and the other police officials were taken on a tour of IITA research facilities.
The AIG asserted, “The people here in (IITA) are very warm and receptive, and the environment is very homely. At this point in Nigeria, we need to establish more partnership grounds with IITA for a better appreciation of farming.”
