Abuja, March 13, 2019 The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has donated Information Communication and Technology (ICT) equipment
to the Nigerian Army Institute of Technology and Environment Studies Markudi to help the institute to carry out its duties.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the equipment donated on Wednesday in Abuja include laptops, printers and projector.
The NCC Head of ICT, Mr Abraham Oshademi, said that the equipment would help the army institute to achieve its mandate and improve efficiency in ICT.
Oshademi explained that the move to donate the equipment started in October 2018 when the institute wrote to the commission, requesting for partnership
and sponsorship from NCC to provide them with ICT facilities.
He said that the commission promptly responded by making donation of the laptops and other equipment requested by the institute.
“The commission no doubt expects that the gesture will go a long way to complement the efforts of the Nigerian Army toward achieving its mandate and to further
enhance the security of the country.
“It is hoped that this donation will make a difference on the staff and students of your institute not only by improving their access to ICT tools but to enhance
their skills in computing.
“It is important to recall the saying that “ to whom much is given, much will be expected.”
He expressed the hope that the equipment would be properly allocated, managed, protected and maintained for the benefit of staff and students.
The Director of ICT in the institute, Miss Chindima Nwafor, thanked NCC for the gesture, adding that it would go a long way to ease their job.
Nwafor said that the Commandant of the institute, Brig.-Gen. Aminu Abdul, expressed gratitude for the equipment, promising that the equipment
would be put to good use.
