Osun To Partner TETFUND On Tertiary Education Development


The Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola has called on Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TetFUND) to increase its interventions in tertiary institu­tions in the Osun state in order to complement the efforts of his administration.

He made the call in Abuja when he paid a courtesy visit to the Executive Secretary of the Fund, Professor Suleiman Bogoro and added that he is seeking a mutual relationship with the Fund in order to explore areas  where his government and Tet- FUND can work together.

Governor Aregbesola stated that the commitment of his ad­ministration on the basic educa­tion in the state is aimed at laying a solid foundation for the tertiary institutions in Osun state has robbed the latter of government attention, hence the need for Tet- FUND to fill in the gap in order to balance the equation.

“Our commitment to founda­tion education has robbed us off the commitment to higher institu­tions” he said

The Governor disclosed that Osun state is the second state in the country with the highest number of tertiary institutions noting that he came to seek an en­during partnership with TetFund so that he can be able to do more for the tertiary institutions.

“I came to seek a mutual rela­tionship and exploit areas where his government and Tetfund can work together. Knowledge is power, education is the greatest legacy any society could leave to those who are going to take up the mantle of leadership tomor­row. The best investment there­fore is education. There can’t be any investment of greater value than education.

“I want to thank those who created Tetfund, we thank the leadership of this country that thought it wise to create an edu­cation trust fund. I’m not here to complain, there’s no reason for it. I’m here therefore to do more for higher institutions in my state.

“You would see me more of­ten and I will not put any pres­sure on you. I will fraternize with you with the mind that my state will get the best from you and you will get the best from the investment.
