Former minister of aviation, Osita Chidoka recently put smile on the faces of over 4,000 university applicants in his home town, Obosi Anambra state with his initiative to set up a computer based testing facility for applicants in the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exam.
Speaking on the project, Chidoka said: ”My hope of making a Obosi a centre knowledge, ICT, Igbo music and language promotion got a boost with the successful conduct of the JAMB exam.
”However, we discovered very low basic computer appreciation skill amongst the students. Access to computers was a major obstacle amongst the students.” On ways to counter the challenges observed, Chidoka stated that: ”We need community intervention, donate a computer(s) to your local secondary school and/or Organise basic computer appreciation training clinics.”
The former minister’s initiative has been commended by many indigenes of the town and other Nigerians.
