The Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), Prof. Suleiman Bogoro, has said that the University of Jos (UNIJOS) had done marvelously well in the areas of Research and Development.
The TEFFund boss, who spoke on Monday, after a tour of ongoing projects at the permanent site of the university along Bauchi road, stated that he was impressed with the institution’s prudence in the management of limited resources.
“The structures are not only massive but of high quality by any engineering standard,” Bogoro stated.
He said the Federal Government would soon release money for the completion of the institution’s library reconstruction project in view of its relevance to academic activities.
“However, I must say this, I have learnt of a particular desk officer in this university who refuse to release money to execute certain projects. Usually, we use to have external agents who monitors and report to us how TETFund approved projects that are being executed without the knowledge of the institution.
“Some of the head units and desk officers slowing the execution of some projects should desist from the act in order not to cut short FG’s intervention programmes in the institution,” he warned.
Prof. Sebastian Maimako, Vice Chancellor of the university, expressed gratitude to the FG through the TETFund secretary, while requesting that he returns to inaugurate some of the completed projects.
