TETFund uncovers Plots to Malign Leadership
The Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) has uncovered new plots by certain individuals and groups to malign the leadership of the Fund and disrupt its activities over the firm determination not to succumb to frivolous requests which are grossly in violation of the Agency’s mandate.
A statement by the Acting Director, Public Affairs of TETFund Abdulmumin Oniyangi indicates that the plots reveal that these individuals and groups who seek all forms of unholy sponsorship, support and patronage from the Fund have in continuation of their campaign of calumny resorted to carrying out demonstrations and writing of frivolous petitions against the Executive Secretary, over his continued stand not to compromise his office.
The statement says the Management of TETFund is cognizant of the increasing confidence being reposed on the Fund by critical stakeholders and indeed the general public, as a result of the impactful reforms introduced in the past year to enhance greater efficiency and quality service delivery; and would not under any circumstance betray public trust.
According to the statement, The Executive Secretary and his team would continue to focus on the needs of the Fund’s Beneficiary Institutions, classified under the TETFund Establishment Act of 2011 as Public Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education, as well as other specific mandate of the Agency.
It reassures the general public that TETFund is being run with a deep sense of responsibility noting that the Executive Secretary remains committed to providing quality, accountable and exemplary leadership and will not be distracted in any way whatsoever, by any mischievous plot.
