TETFund Suspends Lecturers’ Conference Sponsorship Funds Over Corruption.
The Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) has announced the suspension of the disbursement of sponsorship funds for lecturers’ conference attendance over various cases of corruption.
This was made known by the Executive Secretary of TETFund, Suleiman Bogoro, who said that a probe of the intervention was ongoing.
The suspension followed the alleged diversion of sponsorship grants given to lecturers to attend local and international conferences.
The TETFund boss confirmed that the investigating team was yet to complete its task as factors and loopholes that caused leakages are being identified and will be tackled.
“The COVID-19 lockdown contributed to the slow pace of the work but we hope in a matter of few months we will conclude it and we will let you know the outcome,” he said.
Bogoro added that it was unacceptable for funds meant for human capital development to be channeled to other uses.
