“There is no doubt that this noble initiative is our humble way of impacting and contributing to the welfare of the youths and children. The world has become a global village and efforts are being intensified towards achieving sustainable development goals. Thus qualitative education is a panacea in this regard and therefore imperative in the various efforts to bring education to the doorsteps of the young ones. In the light of the foregoing, the importance if a computer education cannot be overemphasized,” Nneji said.

He called on other NGOs to emulate the good works and bold steps taken by G-CCAI. He lauded the project and appreciated NITDA for the noble initiative.
