Benue Institutions Get N3b From TETFUND

Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund Dr. Abdullahi Baffa has appealed to Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, to monitor the N3 billion released to its higher institutions.

TETFund released the money to the State University, Federal University of Agriculture, the state-owned Colleges of Education, Oju and Katsina-Ala, and the Benue Polytechnic, Ugbokolo, for infrastructure development.

Baffa spoke when he visited Ortom at the Benue People’s House, yesterday.
The schools also got money to train their teachers.

According to Baffa, TETFund believes in training teachers and making the environment conducive for learning. He praised Ortom for his peace efforts since assuming office.

Ortom assured Baffa he would personally monitor the projects for which the funds were released.

He said his administration abhors corruption, and reiterated his call on members of his cabinet to go into business if they want quick money.
