The Ibrahim Babangida College of Agriculture is a tertiary educational institution in Obubra, Cross River State, Nigeria. 20 million naira was allocated for infrastructure development in 2001, but only 3.9 million was reported as spent. No further allocations were provided in 2002-2005.[1] In 2002, the college infrastructure was in decay, and it was described as "more or less a glorified secondary school."[2] A 2008 study indicated that graduates from the college were considerably less entrepreneurial than university graduates in the state.[3] The National Youth Service Corps included the college in its list of institutions from which graduates in 2008 had to go on to undertake NYSC service.[4] As of 2010, it was not shown as an approved college of agriculture by the National Board for Technical Education.[5]
