Kano Governor Appeals for TETfund intervention in state-owned universities

Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf has requested that the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) support further intervention projects at Yusuf Maitama Sule University and Kano University of Science and Technology, Wudil.

The governor made the appeal in Abuja on Monday during a special visit to TETFund Executive Secretary Sonny Echono.

Yusuf emphasized the importance of the Kano administration and the Fund working together to improve education delivery.

“I am particularly keen in developing infrastructure because without classrooms, hostels, libraries, or facilities, the entire system will crumble, so the most important task for a university or college is to develop infrastructure”

The Executive Secretary of the TETFund stated that the Fund was willing to collaborate with the Kano government to boost the fortunes of the state’s higher education institutions.

According to Echono, Kano is not just a business-oriented city, but also a center of learning, having more than a dozen universities in the state.

Clarifying the governor’s request for two colleges rather than the entire three controlled by the state government, Echono stated that the TETFund’s Board of Trustees has set a limit on the number of institutions in a state in which the Fund can interfere.

“TETFund gets involved in three institutions within a state: universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education,” he explained. In order to focus resources and create real impact, the Board of Trustees imposed restrictions on a number of institutions.
