A Civil Society Organisation (CSO), the Peoples Development Network has predicted that the unfounded criticisms on the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) may not be ending soon.

This was revealed by the organisation’s Public Relations Officer, Ajibade Daniel in Abuja on Saturday.

“In continuation of their sinister plot to illegally incite the removal of the Fund’s executive secretary, Sonny Echono, the detractors will likely attack the Agency’s research programmes and Academic Staff training next.

“They know what they are doing as they are aware and informed on the operations of the Agency, but it is easy to mislead and misinform the public who are not intimated on the processes of the Agency.

“Everyone knows that TETFund faithfully implements disbursement guidelines as approved by the President in relation to both physical and content components of their interventions,” Daniel said.

He alleged that the reports by some segments of the media had shown that they were available tools in the ongoing attempt to destroy the Agency.

”It is clear that TETFund is currently under siege by desperate office seekers.

“We were there the day ASUU President commended TETFund under its present leadership and how reforms has ensured the Agency is taking a new path in its interventions in tertiary institutions,” Daniel said.

He said some media platforms had been very biased in their reports claiming that the Executive Secretary of the Fund had been detained by ICPC while he was not even invited.

Daniel said this showed clearly that there was a destructive motive behind the numerous reports. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng).
