Abstract

This study evaluates the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) intervention projects and space utilisation in Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic (NUBAPOLY) Zaria of Kaduna state, Nigeria. The study relates to the funding and utilisation of physical projects in NUBAPOLY. The study population consisted of all the twenty-one (21) staff of the physical planning department of Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria. The respondents were selected based on a convenience sampling technique. A total of 21 copies of the questionnaire were administered and retrieved from the respondents. The data collected were analysed using descriptive statistics. Findings from the study revealed that the construction of new buildings (52.4%) and the provision of laboratory equipment and furniture (33.7%) had the highest allocation of funds, respectively. The overall space utilisation for NUBAPOLY is 43.60%. In comparison, renovation of buildings had the least (1.0%). Based on these findings, it was recommended that TETFund should ensure adequate utilisation of its intervention projects through supervision and inspection. The management of Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic should make optimum utilisation of TETFund intervention projects, especially on the Main and Annex campuses, to improve the quality of education.
