About Us


Apart from the problem of inadequate admission space, more than 60% of graduates from tertiary institutions (University, Polytechnic and Colleges) could neither get paid employment nor establish own business. This is partly due to their un-employability and partly due to lack of jobs. Un-employability of graduates could be attributed to Nigeria’s educational model and curriculum which prepares students to become job seekers (employees) instead of job creators (employers). Almost all the tertiary level institutions in Nigeria offer agricultural programmes. Specific institutions such as Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Agriculture have been established by both the Federal and State governments across the 36 States of the country. The curriculum and teaching methods for these agricultural programmes does not emphasis on acquisition of practical, technical and business knowledge and skills based on industry experience. Academic lectures are provided thereby equipping students mostly with theoretical principles but with little or no knowledge of how to apply these principles to solve practical problems. Students are not equipped with industry business experience on how scientific knowledge can be generated from research and applied to develop technological innovations needed to solve practical problems in the industry as a business. More so, Nigeria’s educational system does not provide thought-provoking and imaginative powers that can motivate students to be scientists, technicians and entrepreneurs.


Agricultural Business School (ABS) Ltd is an agro-based educational organization registered and incorporated in Nigeria by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and headquartered in Abuja, Nigeria. It is is a subsidiary of Usreedt Weach that facilitates agribusiness education in partnership with other institutions and students leading to the award of Certificates, Diplomas, Degrees at Bachelor, Masters and Ph D levels to the students. ABS primary goal is to provide theoretical and practical education on business-aspects of agriculture-related programmes. We blend academic theoretical knowledge with industry experience practices for the production of agribusiness entrepreneurs needed to drive Nigeria's agricultural sector on the path of growth and development in the 21st century.

Our core values reflect our work and are captured with the acronym “P.R.E.E.S.T”

  • Respectful: Mutual respect is the pathway to success in business. We believe that we can succeed in the course of our work at ABS by treating our students, staff and clients with the respect they deserve.

  • Excellence in Service: We believe that given the right environment, people have higher chances of excelling. At ABS, staff and student must be provided with conditions conducive for working, teaching and learning to enable them perform their duties excellently. Staff and students are completely responsible for any task given to them, no room for indolence, avoidable mistakes, lapses and excuses.

  • Shared Ambition: With a sense of belonging, people work better. At ABS we adopted Employee-Part-Ownership Business (EPOB) model because we believe that our organization can better be managed by highly motivated people, who share the same feeling of ownership and interest and work to achieving the same goal and ambition in life.

  • Team Work: Nobody is a monopoly of knowledge. We believe that our objectives at ABS can be better achieved by working together in synergy such that everyone has equal opportunity to add value by making useful contributions.
