Press Release: Commendation for the Executive Secretary of TETFUND

The Nigerian Anti-Corruption Defenders (NACD) commend the exemplary performance and technical support provided by the Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) in driving educational reforms across tertiary institutions in Nigeria. We unequivocally support his steadfast dedication to delivering on TETFUND’s mandate and reject any attempt to distract him from this noble cause.

The Executive Secretary has demonstrated outstanding leadership characterized by transparency, accountability, and a zero-tolerance policy towards under-performance and substandard contracts. His commitment to upholding ethical standards and ensuring value for money in TETFUND projects is commendable.

Drawing from his extensive experience as a former Permanent Secretary at the Civil Service Commission, the Executive Secretary has doubled his efforts in transforming TETFUND into a beacon of excellence in tertiary education funding. His open-door policy fosters transparency and encourages stakeholder engagement, contributing to the credibility of TETFUND’s operations.

We are heartened by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s expressed interest and confidence in the Executive Secretary. His unwavering support underscores the significance of the Executive Secretary’s role in driving educational development in Nigeria. We trust that the President’s confidence will continue to be justified as the Executive Secretary steers TETFUND towards greater heights.

We, the Nigerian Anti-Corruption Defenders, humbly extend our sincerest apologies to you for our initial plan to stage a protest against your leadership. Upon careful consideration and reflection, we have decided to withdraw from our protest plans.

We acknowledge that certain individuals with ulterior motives sought to exploit the situation by sponsoring attacks and spreading false allegations against you. Recognizing their selfish intentions, we realize that our participation in the protest would only serve to further their agenda and undermine the integrity of our cause.

Our loyalty to the cause of transparency, accountability, and good governance remains supreme, and we will continue to work alongside you to advance these principles within the tertiary education sector.

We hereby reaffirm our vote of confidence in the Executive Secretary and call on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR to reappoint him to lead TETFUND through the RENEW HOPE initiatives. His performance and outstanding track record merit continuation of his leadership to further enhance teaching and learning environments and advance human capacity development in Nigeria’s tertiary education system.
