The University of Transportation in Daura has been enlisted among tertiary institutions qualified for next year’s Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund).

This announcement was made by the Minister of Transportation, Sen. Said Alkali during his visit and facility assessment of the university at Daura.

With the assistance and collaboration of the Ministry of Education, the National Universities Commission, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, TETFund, amongst others, he has been able to achieve considerable progress.

“We have approached TETFund. The university had made all the checklists of TETFund, so we will be enlisted against next year so that we have more infrastructure for the university to grow,” Alkali revealed.

The minister also disclosed that the university was not captured in the Federal Government’s 2023 appropriation, but President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved for the institution to be enlisted in the 2024 appropriation he announced.

Furthermore, the ministry acknowledged the role of the National Universities Commission for appointing the Ahmadu Bello University as a mentor university to enable the university to commence with admission against the 2023-2024 academic year.

The University of Transportation, Daura was established to provide advanced and specialised training to manpower in the transportation sector, as well as produce graduates with the requisite skills and knowledge to drive the transport sector’s growth.

The minister expressed his belief that the University of Transportation, Daura, will attain the lofty expectation for which it was established. With the support of the relevant stakeholders, the university will continue to grow and achieve its objectives as a centre of excellence in the transportation sector.
