The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has said his administration is building 40 digital literacy centres across the state.
The digital literacy centres among the 2014 to 2019 school infrastructural projects of the administration under the Universal Basic Education Commission and KWSUBEB interventions.
The Governor, who spoke in Ilorin at the unveiling of an ICT Lab donated to the Government Secondary School, Ilorin.
“In the next few years, everything we do will be ICT-driven. It is, therefore, important for us to plan for the future. In a world where robots and artificial intelligence are fast taking up jobs hitherto held by humans. The best investment for the future is a deliberate investment in digital education.
“Our administration is committed to this goal. At the moment, we are building at least 40 modern digital literacy centres in schools across the state. This is unprecedented in the history of Kwara State. We are also hosting a smart school donated to the state by the UBEC. However, that is a drop in the ocean compared to our needs to grow a new generation of digital natives.”
