According to him, the vision is to move Nigeria out of this stranglehold of food insecurity to food security so that the country can export and make more  money.

The vice-chancellor, who noted that Nigeria was a commodity-based economy, said the university was embarking on the project so as to facilitate the transition of the country from a commodity-based economy to a knowledge-based economy.
