VC urges Fed Govt to amend TETFUND law to include private varsities

Date: 2023-12-07

Vice Chancellor of an Islamic faith-based Al-Hikmah University, Prof Noah Yusuf has appealed to the Federal Government to amend the law establishing Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETfund) to enable the fund extend its support to private universities in Nigeria.

Private varsities in the country have over the years, been clamouring for TETfund support.

Prof Yusuf added that private varsities in Nigeria would continue to advocate for their inclusion in TETfund, adding that the universities would soon take their case to the National Assembly to lobby the lawmakers.

“The issue of TETfund support for private universities has been on for awhile. Is it not illogical that private universities which are part of the private sector contributing to TETfund are exempted from benefiting?

“We urge Federal Government to amend the law establishing TETfund so as to factor in the private universities,” professor of.sociology has said.

The vice chancellor told reporters in Ilorin, Kwara state capital ahead of this week Saturday 13th convocation ceremonies of the university.

He revealed that the university would produce 26 first class graduates at the convocation ceremonies.

“We are humbled and blessed to present to this gathering 1,207 undergraduates, 345 post graduates and 31 diplomas totalling 1,583. The breakdown is as follows: first class honours 26, second class honours (upper division) 472, second class honours (lower division) 600 and 109 third class. Others are 27 doctoral degress, two masters of philosophy, 211 masters,” he said.

Reeling out some of his modest achievements Prof Yusuf said that National Universities Commission (NUC) had successfully accredited “48 out 51 percent of our undergraduate academic programmes with full accreditation status.

“There has also been improved and sustained students enrollment since my assumption of office. For the first time in recent years, the university recorded the highest number of admitted regular and part-time and professional programmes– 1,287 in 2021; 1,450 in 2022 and 2,450 in 2023.”
