Nigerian Universities to get N485m each from Federal Govt

The federal government, through the Minister of Education, Ruquayyatu Rufa’i, announced yesterday that every public university in Nigeria would receive N485 million as financial intervention for 2012.

The money would be disbursed under the 2012 Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), and its part of federal government's commitment to better funding for the nation’s tertiary education sector.

    Our country Nigeria could it be better than this. This money will still go into some pockets. The schools will be left with no light,water etc. The schools will remind the same.Our leaders should grow up. What of the light. when is the problem going to sloved. All i will keep on saying is we all have a part to play.

    @Anon 5:14, are u a CU student at aaall. How is that ur school? That is UNILAG 4 God's sake cept the picture was changed. Why should private Uni benefit frm the bounty? The charge enuf to be self reliant. U surely dont want to compare tuition of btwn 7-20k to 350 n above do u? I am so sure the big guns in the Education sector are dancin azonto. Lol.

    It is clear that most Nigerians are die-hard pessimist.
    If the FG doesn't release fund - problem. If they did - problem! Reminds me of d song by Ebenezer Obe. Scripture tells me that by the blessing of the upright, the city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked. Let us watch what we say, especially as many as claim they are Christian.

    It's not alie...these funds have been released annually even before GEJ...sadly TETFund (formerly ETF)is not permitted to "pokenose" too much. Monitoring, evaluation and annual OPEN reports are released bi-annually as well. The amount was increased last year to this current figures....not denying the corruption but you can ask around and see if TETFund has'nt been efficient and effective over the years. Lets try to be more open-minded.
