    For long I have heard about tetfund through the media and seen some infrastructural projects in educational institutions. But I decided to find out today being the 14th of January, 2024 how tetfund can come to the rescue of Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital, Okolobiri, Bayelsa State, in construction of lecture halls, student hostels and supply of critical medical equipment to upgrade health care management to enable the teaching hospital establish training institutions. As a member of the NDUTH governing board, it is disgusting to see the absence of a single training institute for the provision of specialist training for health professionals. Thank you TETFUND.
