TETFund, Pan African University Collaborate On Technological Promotion

The Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) says it is working with the Pan African University on establishing an institute in the country with focus on technology promotion.

The Executive Secretary, TETFund, Mr. Sonny Echono disclosed this on Friday in Abuja, while playing host to a team of African Union Commission for Education led by Prof. Mohammed Belhocine.

Echono said that the Fund was ready to forge a relationship with the Pan African University to push the African Union (AU) agenda and that of the university forward.

“The government of Nigeria actually thinks in that direction of promoting technology and we are in the process of establishing a national institute here in Abuja.

” There will be a post graduate institution intended to promote the technological transformation of our country.

“The Pan African University also fits into this general framework and we believe the partnership will be there for us to be able to learn one or two things to attract values to the faculties. It will also be a huge opportunity for scholars to troop into the university.

“I like to assure you that within the framework that we have, we will give you the maximum support to make that building functional and be put to use quickly,” he said.

The TETFund boss further gave assurance that the request for construction of more classrooms and procurement of laboratory equipment for the Pan African University at the University of Ibadan would be attended to.

Earlier, Prof. Mohammed Belhocine said the Pan African University needed some assistance from the TETfund in terms of more classrooms, laboratory equipment and other areas.

“There are four institutes in Africa, which we are operating. One in West Africa in Ibadan, another in East Africa which is in Nairobi, the other one in North Africa, which is Algeria.

” We have one also which deals with governance and humanities, social science in Yaounde, Cameroon Central Africa,” he said.
