Agency Report

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Prof. Florence Obi, has urged the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) to massively increase its presence in the institution.

Obi made the call on Monday in Calabar when officials of the education funding agency paid her an official visit.

She said the university under her leadership intended to have a robust, closer, and lively relationship with TETFUND and would want to see more of its impact in the institution.

Obi said the university has had to grapple with many infrastructural challenges over the years which had resulted in many errors and shortcomings, a development it would not want to repeat.

The vice-chancellor noted that with the visit of the TETFUND officials, the university would be guided on the path of best practices, pointing out that the interactive process would be a learning curve that the institution would benefit from.

In an earlier address, the TETFUND Team Leader, Oye Abdul-Rasheed, said that they were in the university to carry out a forensic exercise on past and ongoing projects.

He said the exercise, which would cover projects executed from 2012 to date, would be devoid of witch-hunts but rather aimed at propagating knowledgeable, effective, and sound mode of TETFUNF operations.
