TERTIARY EDUCATION TRUST FUND (TETFund), RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT AND NIGERIA’S HIGHER EDUCATION

Shuaibu Ibrahim

Abstract


This chapter focuses attention on the TETFund intervention in tertiary institutions. Research and development is strategic for the growth and development of a country, however, this requires funding; which was hitherto lacking in the Nigerian higher education system until the advent of TETFund. The chapter has focused adequate attention on research and development (Rand D) and argues that strategic position of TETFund in Nigeria’s educational system has much to do with research, inventions, innovations and studies. This is because education at this level brings solutions to challenges nations face in their quest to self-reliance and sustainability. The chapter has identified challenges of TETFund to include funding to overcome the inadequacy of fiscal resources which threatens to erode the desired qualitative higher education output. In this regard, the chapter proffers solutions on how TETFund could be repositioned for optimum performance.
