Lagos police school receives computer lab

04 April 2014, 11:21Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - Learners at the Police Children School in Lagos have received a major boost after a Chinese-based technology firm donated and information and communication technology laboratory to enhance learning at the school.

The laboratory consists of 20 modern desktop computers with accessories and connection to the internet with a subscription for 18 months. It is also complemented with a 5KVA generator for power back-up.
ZTE said it was motivated to donate the lab to the school to enhance the student ICT knowledge.

Speaking at the unveiling of the laboratory, Managing Director of ZTE Nigeria, Hao Fuqiang, said the firm saw ICT as the future of the country and as such, was doing all it could to ensure students, especially in police schools, were not left off the revolution.

Fuqiang said his company hoped to donate more of such labs to other schools across the country in the coming years.

“With this project, ZTE plans to make donations of ICT laboratories to select primary and secondary schools. We strongly believe in the common saying that the children of today are tomorrow’s future,” he said.

He added that for Nigerian children to be able to compete in the ever-dynamic tech world, they needed exposure to the latest computing technologies.

Fuqiang added, “We at ZTE see the police as a strategic institution in promoting peace, law and order necessary for national development and business growth. You will agree with me that while a policeman is busy at dangerous assignments trying to protect lives, property and businesses, his child deserves the best of education.”

Akerenale Gladys Modupe, head-teacher of the school expressed gratitude to ZTE and assured the school would make the best use of the lab.

“We appreciate the management and staff of ZTE for giving Police Children School, Ikeja opportunity to partake in their selfless humanitarian services.”
