Delta halts computer distribution exercise

23 October 2013, 15:37

Abuja - The Delta State Government has postponed the distribution of computers to public schools in the state.

Paul Osahor, the state’s Director of Information, confirmed the deferment of the exercise in a statement, without offering reasons.

“It is hereby announced for the information of the general public, particularly Deltans, that the distribution of the second batch of computers and generating sets to public schools in the state, under the Computer Literacy Appreciation Programme for Senior Secondary Schools by the Delta State Directorate of Science and Technology has been postponed till further notice,” Osahor stated.

He added that the Chief Inspectors of Education and Principals of Public Secondary Schools in the State scheduled to benefit from this programme in this second exercise were by the announcement, advised to take note.

Although he could not shed light into the development, Osahor expressed regret at the suspension.

“The Directorate of Science and Technology regrets all inconveniences caused by the postponement,” the state’s spokesperson said.

The Computer Literacy Appreciation Programme for Senior Secondary Schools (CLAPS) is designed to bring the world of Information and Communication Technology closer to students in the state. 

Hundreds of learners benefited from the first batch of the programme.
