Mrs. Abii cited an example by naming some of these schemes to include Zinox corporate, Model Digital Centre, Staff Computer Acquisition, Digital Lab, Zinox
Students Computer Ownership Project (ZSCOP) to name a few.

The Digital Lab scheme, she said, often avails Zinox to donate furniture and other infrastructure to motivate selected institutions to expose their students to computers, even as the Zinox Students Computer Ownership Project affords is seen as a generous platform that affords students to take possession of the computer after paying just 10 per cent of the price.
