Engr. Dr. Ahemen Samuel
The College Management, Staff, Students and the entire College Community are highly honoured to welcome you to our College. Our College is a State institution owned by the Benue State Government. It was founded in 1926 as a Farm Training Centre by the Colonial Administration. In 1973, it was upgraded to a School of Agriculture offering programmes leading to the award of Ordinary National Diplomas (OND). In 1983, a Benue State House of Assembly bill upgraded it to a College of Agriculture and empowered it to award National and Higher National Diplomas. It was later renamed Akperan Orshi College of Agriculture in memory of the late paramount traditional ruler of Tivland where it is located, HRH Orchiviligh (Dr.) James Akperan Orshi, Tor Tiv III. AOCAY is a specialised institution with a mandate to train middle level manpower with technical skills in the agricultural sector. The College runs several programmes including Remedial Science, Pre-National Diploma, National Diploma, Pre-Higher National Diploma, Higher National Diploma & Post Graduate Diplomas in agriculture and allied courses. Aside from farms which are used by students for practical, we engage in commercial activities like piggery, poultry production, fish farming, hatchery services, animal feed production, nurseries/orchards, tractor hiring and consultancy services among others. The College is located in Yandev, a town 82km from Makurdi, the capital of Benue State.
