According to him, the institution would adhere strictly to the templates of TETfund to ensure that the centre achieves its set goals and objectives.
The Vice Chancellor who described the visit as ‘timely, said it has created an opportunity for the institution and TETfund to cross- fertilize ideas on how to run the centre.

In his words, ‘’ we value the centre and that is why we are taking it seriously. On our part we will ensure that the centre functions optimally because it is a centre where research can be carried out’’
Earlier, the Team leader from TETfund, Prof. Babajide Alo said they were on a working visit to all the APCs in the six Geo-political zones of the country.

He said the visit is to examine and evaluate the state of affairs of the APC in UNICAL with a view to ensuring that the centre achieves its desired purpose.

The team leader who described the UNICAL APC as a model for other centers said he was happy with the progress made so far by the Vice Chancellor in the centre, even as he assured that TETfund is poised to address the challenges confronting the centre. 

‘’We are on a working visit across the APCs in the country to examine and evaluate how they have fared so far.

‘’We congratulate the Vice Chancellor for what we have seen so far, you have gone far above other APCs,  yours is a model for other centers”, he added
