Buhari Empowers Federal Universities With N208billion For Infrastructure

Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari empowers Federal Universities with the sum of N208 billion for infrastructure.

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the immediate disbursement of N208billion to empower federal universities across the country for infrastructural development.

The President said the approval was executed under the 2019 intervention of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund to “address the deficiencies in all the segments of our educational system.”

Buhari made the statement on Saturday at the 23rd convocation of the University of Abuja, where he was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mr Sonny Echono.

The President, who is the Visitor to the school, said the university system must search for solutions to the nation’s developmental needs.

His Words:

“The ability of Nigeria with its huge population to overcome its present challenges of development no longer depends on petroleum resources but on the ability of the country to develop its human capital. The present administration will continue to improve on the infrastructural facilities in the universities, promote teacher development and curriculum review.

“It is in furtherance of this that I recently approved the disbursement of N208bn to public tertiary institutions under the 2019 intervention of the TETFUND.

“The government will continue to look into the issues raised by the universities, especially regarding physical development and will equally monitor the universities closely.”
