Dr. Abdullahi Baffa, Executive Secretary, Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), says the fund is committed to ensuring transparency in its operations by making information available to the public.
He said this when he received two Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), Basic Rights Watch and Connected Development (CODE) in his office in Abuja, yesterday.
He said the fund would in September introduce a monthly publication as a way of making information available to the public and its stakeholders on its activities.
“The publication will be submitting raw information about all the approvals given in the previous month, all the disbursements made and all completed projects in the previous month.
“It will also include all the scholars that have travelled and returned and all the conferences that have been approved among other activities of the fund.
“The publication will be giving raw information to the public as well as sensitising them.
“For us, transparency is number one, not just making the information available to Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and CSOs but making the information available directly to the public.
“In August, we will produce the July edition of TETFund digest. We will work on back issues to cover for January to June, so each month we may be producing two issues,” he disclosed.
