An Internet Communication Technology Laboratory ICT Lab, donated to Government Secondary School, GSS Ilorin, by YouthHubAfrica with support from a telecommunication company has been commissioned for use.
Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq commended YouthHubAfrica and the telecommunication company, and said the ICT Lab was a great boost to the efforts of his administration to improve standard of education in the state.
Governor AbdulRazaq explained that his administration was currently building 40 digital literacy centres across the state, under the Universal Basic Education Commission-Kwara State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) interventions.
The Governor, also promised to fix some facilities at the school, and directed immediate supply of 100 units of furniture to the school.
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 in information technology, urging management of the school to put the lab into proper use.
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, as he appealed to the governor to help revive many decaying facilities in the school.
