The Kebbi State Government said the process has been finalised for it to secure N1. 5bn Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) for the upgrade of the state University of Science and Technology in Aliero.

The Commissioner for Higher Education, Alhaji Isah Abubakar Tunga during a press briefing said Governor Nasir Idris has decided to improve infrastructure in the institution.

He said 50 buildings and a mosque would be renovated while new buildings, additional hostels and staff quarters will be constructed in the university. 

He added that the state government was ready to uphold the position of the university as one of the 10 best states’ owned universities in the country. 

He explained that Governor Idris has also increased cash allocation to the university from N5m to N15m to enable management of the institution to offset part of the arrears it owed the lecturers. 

“The governor has approved N119m for the first convocation of the university to graduate 12 sets of graduands,” he said.
