26 schools benefit from TETFund scheme
At least 26 Federal and State tertiary institutions in the Northwest have benefitted from the ongoing sensitisation and awareness exercise being carried out by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund).
The exercise, which is for all the beneficiary institutions of the Fund, is in line with the determination of the Executive Secretary, Dr. Abdullahi Bichi Baffa to ensure that processes for the agency’s interventions are made open and known to all stakeholders.
Dr. Baffa who led his team to the Northwest zone recently told participants at the various campuses of the institutions visited that the seminar became necessary to get rid of all the encumbrances encountered in accessing intervention allocations from TETFund.
In a statement by the Fund’s Director of Public Relations, Ebikwo Benn, The TETFund chief said the seminar would now make all processes open to all stakeholders in the various academic communities.
Baffa who insisted that his management is committed to ensuring that beneficiaries adhere strictly to the established guidelines and procedures for the smooth running of its operations, explained that the seminar was not only to clear grey areas through a detailed presentation of all the requirements for each of the intervention lines, but also to enhance a more cordial and effective collaboration between the beneficiaries and management of the agency.
During the sensitisation workshops, teams from TETFund drawn from the relevant departments for the various intervention lines as well as from the internal audit unit made presentations, showing the audience how to comply with the guidelines of all TETFund interventions.
The Executive Secretary also provided answers to the questions and observations raised, leaving everyone better informed and educated about the processes involved in accessing allocated funds.
