The Tertiary Education Trust Fund, (TETFUND), has commended Federal University, Oye Ekiti, FUOYE, for clearly leading its contemporaries in project implementation during its visit to the university.

Speaking at the occasion, a member of Board of Trustees of TETFUND in charge of South West Zone, Lady (Dr) Anna Kolawole who recently led four staff of TETFUND on a work visit to the Vice Chancellor, Prof Isaac Asuzu, made this observation. Their mission was
specifically for project inspection and needs assessment of the university.

The meeting, which held in the Vice Chancellor’s office, started with Dr. Mrs. Anna Kolawole intimating the Vice Chancellor and some principal officers present of TETFUNDS’s
imminent plan to release the
2013 appropriated funds to each deserving institution across the nation, adding that the planned release of funds would be based principally on a proof of evident use of previous releases by each institution.

She therefore asked pointed questions bothering on FUOYE’s current students’ number, total landmass, report on the utilization of last TETFUND’s release to
the university, et cetera.

Reacting to the Trustee’s inquiries, Professor Asuzu revealed that the first money received by FUOYE in 2011 was
for 32 projects—out of which the
University, without a single default, had since completed all. He promised to take the visitors round the project sites as part
of their inspection tour.


The Vice Chancellor further
hinted that the institution’s
second subvention was from the presidency
under its presidential intervention projects scheme; adding that the fund
was meant for four projects

two faculty buildings, ICT complex
and library. According to the Vice Chancellor, these projects were
already under construction and had reached completion level ranging between 30% and 60%.

The visiting team reiterated its fund’s plan to build two student hostels, as well help train FUOYE’s academic staff at higher degree levels, in Nigeria and overseas.

Responding to the visitor’s promise, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Isaac Asuzu, appreciated their timely visit,
but decried the University inability to start full-scale research despite
parading an array of highly qualified academic manpower, due largely to

acute paucity of funds which has given rise to lack of facilities like laboratories, lecture halls, offices for staff et cetera. He therefore
prayed the team leader, Lady Chief Mrs. Anna Kolawole to help convey FUOYE’s plight to Abuja.

On his part, the Acting Registrar of FUOYE, Mr. Daniel Adeyemo, appealed for special intervention in area of water, emphasizing that water scarcity on campus posed a great challenge to smooth operation of the institution. Concluding, Mr. Adeyemo enjoined TETFUND to take into consideration FUOYE’s unique structure of two campuses, as it poses a huge funding challenge.

 The TETFUND team leader promised to convey the prayers of FUOYE management to their headquarters’ while stating that the 2013 normal intervention fund would take care of FUOYE’s water needs.

After the closed door meeting, the visiting team was taken through an inspection tour of past and pres projects on the FUOYE campuses.

Visibly impressed by what she saw on ground, Chief Mrs. Anna Kolawole praised management over what she termed, FUOYE unmatched integrity and total adherence to TETFUND’s project implementation therefore assured management of Tetfund ‘s readiness to always partner with it in all fronts.
