Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) has described the consistent contributions of Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCo) to education in Nigeria as exemplary and worthy of emulation by other corporations.
The Executive Secretary of TETFund, Professor Suleiman Elias Bogoro, and the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Kashim Ibrahim Imam, gave the commendation at an event in Abuja to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Federal Government agency established in 2011 to disburse, manage, and monitor education tax to government-owned tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
SNEPCo was presented with an award of recognition for consistent contributions towards the growth of the public tertiary education sector.
Apart from its contributions to the Nigerian economy through income generation for the government, payment of taxes and other statutory levies, SNEPCo implements social investment projects across the country with a focus on education and health.
SNEPCo’s National University Scholarship, delivered in conjunction with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, has supported over 490 Nigerian students since the programme was launched in 2016.
