The Executive Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said that his administration vision to reform public education got a boost with the donation of 20,000 digital devices by First Bank Nigeria. He made this known on his official social platform on Thursday, he said the data enabled devices have preinstalled applications that allow users learn from approved curricula.
According to the Governor, “when we set out our vision to change the face of education in Lagos, we knew from the onset that we could not achieve much progress in improving the quality of learning if we don’t use technology as a strong enabler. “This intervention by First Bank has come at a good time. It feels great when organisations share in our vision and work with us to realise it. I’m glad to say that we have found a real development partner in First Bank”, he said.
He added that nobody foresaw COVID-19 pandemic coming along and disrupting the ways of life. “These devices will be useful to our pupils in the current circumstances we have found ourselves”, he said.
