• The Vice-Chancellor of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, Prof. Hilary Edeoga, has stated that the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) had impacted positively on the institution.

    Conducting journalists round some TETFund projects in the institution, Edeoga said that the Fund had cushioned the effects of dwindling capital allocation to the institution.

    He said that TETFund had committed billions of naira into projects in the institution in the past four years, adding that the Centre for Gender, which is one of the projects, had been completed.

    “Throughout last year, our capital allocation was over N300 million, but we did not get up to N100 million.

    “In fact, we got N68 million; but if you go outside, you will see completed buildings constructed through TETFund.

    “I do not know what would have happened to public universities in Nigeria without TETFund.

    “We have not received any money as capital allocation since the beginning of this year; that is why we must commend the Federal Government for establishing TETFund,” the VC said.

    According to him, the massive infrastructural and academic development of the institution is because of transparent deployment of TETFund allocations and Internally Generated Revenue.

    He said that over 100 academic staff of the institution had benefitted from TETFund sponsored training and scholarships in the past three years.

    The TETFund projects in MOUAU include, classroom blocks, laboratory equipment, furniture, ICT department, lecture theatres, post graduate building, auditorium, piggery building, among others. (NAN)
