Published

on

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has applauded the Huawei group for its contributions toward the development of ICT education in Kwara state, and Nigeria.

The Governor, who spoke in Ilorin on Tuesday at the commissioning of the ICT Lab donated to the Government Secondary School (GSS) by Huawei under its Youthhub Africa Initiative, said government is making deliberate efforts to raise a new generation of digital natives in Kwara.

He commended the Huawei for the ICT intervention, saying: “It is the best investment in the future of our children. For me, it is a shining example of how conglomerates can partner with government to build sustainable future anchored on digital education.

“Huawei is a leading telecoms giant in the world. With over two decades of operations in Nigeria, this gift speaks so highly of Huawei’s credibility and commitment to grow with the Nigerian people. I’m not surprised at the company doing this. This is because it has been a trustworthy partner working with various ICT players in building reliable telecoms infrastructure across Nigeria, and partnering with governments in ICT trainings for civil servants, students, and young graduates.

“We are grateful. Yet, we request Huawei to do more for the Kwara people, while encouraging others to follow this fine example of corporate social responsibility.”

For her part, Commissioner for Education and Human Capital Development Hajia Sa’adatu Modibbo Kawu said the facilities would go a long way to broaden the knowledge of students information technology.

“I want to seize this opportunity to appeal for the extension of the gesture to Queen Elizabeth School, Ilorin designated for female exchange students. This will ensure that they are on the same learning pace. It is my belief that girl child should not be left out of the knowledge of ICT,” Kawu appealed.

National President of the GSS Ilorin Old Boys Association Engr Suleiman Alapansanpa said the facility would position students of the school to compete favourably with their peers around the world.

“It gladdens our hearts that the students of GSS Ilorin can now digitally communicate, create, disseminate, store and manage information, while teaching and learning via ICT, compared to the old system of chalkboards or white boards.

Commending the administration for its strides in education infrastructure across the state, Alapansanpa appealed to the governor to help in reviving the institution by giving prominence to its many decaying facilities.

Deputy Managing Director/CEO of Huawei Technologies Company Nigeria Limited Kelvin Yangyang explained that Huawei had developed various initiatives in building talents and future of Nigerian youths.

“The country’s strength is about its people and the country’s future is about its youths. That is why Huawei is helping in building young talents. In Nigeria, we have three major talent initiatives for students at various levels. We partnered with Youthhub Africa to help us build outstanding ICT lab Ilorin. Dear students, the technology has become an incredibly asset in every area of our life, ranging from education to entertainment in personal life. This has provided technological opportunities to you. It is a good assistance to enhance your studies. You can get answers to questions with just a click. From this point, you have access to the world right in your hand,” Yangyang said.

Rotimi Olawale, executive director of YouthHub Africa, urged the students to make judicious use of the facilities and work hard to become great in their fields.
