The Chancellor, Landmark University, Bishop David Oyedepo, Omu-Aran on Thursday said the Agricultural and Chemical Engineering departments of the institution has commenced the processing of diesel from Jatropha seeds obtained from the varsity’s plantation.

He added that the first phase of the plantation is about 534 hectares.

He stated that in the quest towards wealth creation and generation of gainful employment in Nigeria, Landmark established the Jatropha

Plantation at its Eleyin Farm Plantation in April 2014.

He stated that the biofuel plant, which according to him is of great economic importance, was being developed by the School of Engineering of the institution.

Oyedepo spoke during the institution’s second convocation media conference at Omu-Aran, in Irepodun Local Government of Kwara State.

“The project which commenced in April 2014 has started yielding encouraging results as some harvested Jatropha seeds have been processed into diesel by the Agricultural and Chemical Engineering Departments of Landmark University,” he said.

The chancellor said Landmark University will on Friday (today) graduate 573 students.

According to him, 59 of the students earned First Class honour degrees, 226 got Second Class Upper degrees; 276 Second Class Lower degrees while 12 earned Third Class.
