Ekiti State Government on Wednesday commenced the distribution of laptops to pupils in secondary schools across the state.

Governor Kayode Fayemi, who presented the Samsung laptops to some selected students drawn from various schools, said the state administration was working hard to regain the lost glory of the state in the education sector.

The state also procured braille computers for blind students. It also gave out walking sticks and other devices to aid deaf students in their educational pursuit.

The governor said human development could not be achieved in this age without Information and Communication Technology.

According to him, the state government will spend N6bn to procure 100,000 units of computers.

The governor added that although the state had 95,000 students population in its secondary school, 100,000 were ordered because it anticipated that enrollment in public schools would soon increase.

Fayemi also distributed school bags to enable the students protect the laptops well.

He said the era of students using fertilizer bags to bring books to school had ended with the provision of the school bags.

He said, “Our government has gone this far to ensure that everything is done to make us stand shoulders higher than other states by recreating our feat in the areas of academic excellence that our land was in the time past identified with.

“This is why it has become very imperative for those involved in the teaching and learning process to be computer-literate in line with global standard of knowledge acquisition.”
