A statement by the spokesperson of the fund, though not seen by Campusbiz but reported by the DailyTrust said the Executive Secretary of TETFund, Dr Abdullahi Bichi Baffa disclosed this when he commissioned multiple projects sponsored by the fund at the university.

The statement quoted Dr Baffa as saying “I must say the university is doing well but one hitch that has been hindering the springing up of more TETFund projects on this campus perhaps is the crisis that engulfed the university for so many years and became a huge impediment to draw down on its own allocation,”

Prof Felix Kolawole Salako, The Vice Chancellor of the university, said he had discussed with TETFund on how the varsity could acess more interventions.

Project commissioned at the University included 1,000-Seater Capacity Lecture Theatre, Science Laboratories and Furniture fittings for: 250-Seater Biology Laboratory; 250-Seater Chemistry Laboratory; 250-Seater Physics Laboratory; and Office Complex for the Laboratories, and Entrepreneurship Building and Furniture fittings.
