It was gathered that TETFund had abandoned funding of these projects since 2018, when inspectors from the Federal Government funding agency could not match the level of money disbursed and the percentage of work done on site.
“TETFund said it will not pay another kobo on the projects as long as there was discrepancy in the percentage of job done and money paid out to the contractors before 2018,” said Danladi M. Aduwu, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the school.
“This was the situation that the current Provost , Prof. Alexander Kure inherited when he became the Provost of the School in 2018,” he said.
“I cannot count the number of trips that the Provost of the school made to TETfund Headquarters in Abuja to convince its management that under his watch, all monies released for TETfund projects in the school will be accounted for.
“What he did was to get the contractors and make them return to site. And once they returned and took the project commensurate to the funds released, TETFund became confident in the new leadership of this school and that is how you see all the revolutionary strides in infrastructure that the school is enjoying,” he said.
“He is renovating dilapidated structures and improving on the poor road networks even with the tiny running cost he gets. Go to our Consultancy Services at our Kafanchan Campus and see how he has turned the place around,” he said.
“The Provost has always maintained that he does not want to disappoint Governor Nasir el-Rufai who appointed him, knowing that the governor is a man of class and taste when it comes to learning,” he went on.
” He also acknowledges that the school is the most important government asset in Southern Kaduna which has turned out quality manpower into the Nigeria educational sector for which he is expected to improve on what he met, not draw it back.”
The Scholar further affirmed his readiness to partner with major stake holders in education to ensure the College remains the Flagship amongst similar institutions..
