Governor Mutfwang Advocates For More TETfund support in Plateau State tertiary institutions

Barr. Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang, the Executive Governor of Plateau State, has called for expanded Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) intervention in the state’s higher institutions to help with educational growth.

In a statement issued by Mr. Gyang Bere, the Director of Press and Public Affairs (DOPPA) he disclosed that During a courtesy visit to the TETFund’s Executive Secretary, Arc. Sonny S.T. Echono, in Abuja, Governor Mutfwang specifically requested infrastructure support for institutions such as Plateau State University Bokkos, College of Education Gindiri, and Plateau State Polytechnic Barkin-Ladi, among others. He specifically asked fencing and the construction of new hostels to improve campus security and create a positive learning environment.

“I chose to approach TETFund due to the significance of these institutions for our educational development,” Governor Mutfwang stated.

Acknowledging the crucial role TETFund has played in supporting the state’s institutions in the past, the Governor said his administration has made positive impact on accreditation, staff morale, and overall institutional progress within the last seven months.

Governor Mutfwang expressed confidence that TETFund administration will permit additional initiatives to improve security and academic performance in the state’s tertiary institutions.

Responding, TETFund’s Executive Secretary, Arc. Sunny S.T. Echono, welcomed the visit and reiterated the Commission’s commitment to providing greater assistance within the restrictions of limited resources.

He welcomed the strong engagement with Plateau State on project implementation and emphasised TETFund’s commitment to aiding the state in developing the personnel required for national development.

Arc. Echono described TETFund’s multifaceted actions, which include funding for academic research and equitable allocation of resources for infrastructural development to foster a conducive learning environment.

He stated that the Commission is eager to continue working with the state to improve kids’ living conditions and educational possibilities.
