Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) has pledged to support any cause that will help tertiary institutions in the country to produce graduates that can be globally competitive with the necessary skills and innovation.
Executive Secretary of TETFund, Sonny Echono, stated this during a visit to INNOVATEHUB, in Abuja, Yesterday
He stated that building an innovative technology solution in the institution will not only enable graduates to be self-employed but also provide needed workspace for graduates through expertise.
He said: “We need to do things creatively so that we can employ all our youths that are unemployed. We can fast-track the process and also modernize the training programme that we have to bring them in tune with the needs of industry and the workplace.
‘’The message that we are spreading across the ECOWAS is to make sure that Nigeria be the hub for innovation, and then we spread out the message across Africa. Africa must become competitive, ultimately we have shown this in various spheres through our scholars who make exploits and contribute to the global knowledge and economy.
