The Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), Prof. Suleiman Ellias Bogoro, has clinched performance awards from three different organisations within a spate of one week.
The Bauchi State-born professor was bestowed with an Award of Excellence of the Nigerian Society for Animal Production (NSAP) during the 45th Annual Conference of the body in Bauchi a fortnight ago.
Bogoro, who was returned as the Executive Secretary of TETFund on January 2019 after an impactful stint in the same position between 2014 and 2016, was also conferred with The Public Service Person of the Year during The LEADERSHIP Conference and Awards Ceremony in Abuja on 19 March, 2020.
The TETFUnd’s boss was also recognised the same day for his tremendous efforts in repositioning the Fund for better performance in its several intervention activities in public universities, polytechnics and colleges of education as he was honoured with an award for “Excellence in Public Service” at the Business Day Annual Award Ceremony in Abuja.
The AUTHORITY reports that apart from boosting TETFund’s intervention on infrastructural development in beneficiary institutions, Prof. Bogoro’s penchant to enhance research in the country recently received the blessing of President Muhammadu Buhari, who approved N5 billion for a National Research Fund that would be accessed as grants by lecturers.
