Telecoms Network provider, Airtel, has said that it is set to inaugurate its Information and Communications Technology initiative in rural communities in the South-West region of Nigeria.
The company, in a statement signed by Adebayo Dawodu, said the initiative, tagged: ‘Boost ICT Usage in Rural Areas’, was aimed at driving ICT usage in rural communities across the country.
According to the statement, the South-West inauguration came on the heels of a successful initiation of the programme in Afikpo, Ebonyi State four weeks ago.
It said, “The Airtel’s ICT Rural programme, which is intended to empower rural dwellers with basic ICT skills, enabling them to use smartphones and tablets to surf the World Wide Web and connect with friends and family members via the Internet, has reached several rural communities and interior towns in the South East and South-South parts of the country.
“The South-West phase of the programme will be implemented in different areas in the region ranging from Iseyin town in Oyo State, Ido-Osi town in Ekiti State and Ipetu-Modu community in Osun State. People living in or visiting the designated locations in the states will be enlightened and empowered through the initiative.
“The campaign is also expected to hold in some communities in Abuja, Nassarawa, Adamawa, Borno, Kebbi, Zamfara, Kaduna and Niger States between October 8 and 29, 2014,” the statement added.”
