The Governor who expressed gratitude for TETFUND ‘s intervention in tertiary institutions in Kogi state so far, called on the Executive Secretary to assist the state with access to improved funding for high-impact projects in tertiary educational institutions in the state:

“I commend TETFUND for the impact in the development of tertiary education in Kogi State particularly the speedy development of our brand new Kogi State University, Kabba which recently held its maiden matriculation of its first set of over 1000 students and has fully commenced academic activities.

“I must say that TETFUND has made a remarkable impact in supporting higher institutions in Kogi State such as the Prince Abubakar Audu University Ayingba, Confluence University of Science and Technology, Osara, Kogi State Polytechnic Lokoja, College of Education Ankpa, College of Education (Technical) Kabba, but we will continue to seek your support for intervention in developing critical infrastructure in our tertiary educational institutions to help in advancing our agenda for accelerated human capital development in the state”, he said.
