In furtherance of its drive to move 1 million students to e-learning, First Bank Nigeria Plc, a Junior Achievement Nigeria Board Member, has donated 20,000 Roducate digital devices to schools in Lagos State.
The Governor of Lagos State, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu while receiving the devices said “Our vision to reform public education got a boost with the donation of 20,000 digital devices by FirstBank Nigeria. The data enabled devices have preinstalled applications that allow users to learn from approved curricula.”
“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.” The Governor added.
Governor Sanwo-Olu acknowledged that FirstBank’s intervention came at a good time adding that when organizations share in government’s vision and work, this brings about real development. I’m glad to say that we have found a real development partner in First Bank.
“Nobody foresaw #COVID19 coming along and disrupting our ways of life. These devices will be useful to our pupils in the current circumstances we have found ourselves.” Governor Sanwo-Olu stated.
Aside from being a JA Nigeria Board Member, FirstBank Nigeria Plc is the proud sponsor of our annual National Company of the Year competition and they also support the implementation of the Company Program in Ebonyi.
