CNP road show to storm 15 cities

Computerize Nigeria Project (CNP) has commenced a nationwide road show of its 750,000 Laptops project, slated to storm 15 cities and designed to bring immediate and permanent relief to computer users across the country.

Head of Special Projects, Computerize Nigeria Project, Mrs. Loretta Agbakoba said that the road show which comes in two phases, would ensure a truly national participation in the recently launched 750,000 Laptops Project for Nigerians.

As said by her, most state capitals are on the route of this road show but in particular the road show is storming Uyo, Yenagoa, Port Harcourt, Kaduna, Calabar, Abuja, Owerri, Enugu, Ibadan and Akure. Other cities include Jos, Kano, Benin, Asaba, and Lagos.

Mrs. Agbakoba also said that the road show was a direct response to the numerous enquiries that the CNP has received since the launch of the 750,000 Laptops Project.

She described the road show as patriotic in its reach and comprehensive in offer, stressing that CNP was reaching out to the working class and small businesses in the country, in a way that has never been done before, mostly with the 750,000 laptops promo.

“This road show is loaded with computer ownership incentives to empower civil servants; federal, state and local governments, staff of organized private sector, military and para-military organizations, students as well as staff of educational institutions and cooperatives.

She further said that the road show was comprehensive in its offer because for the first time in the history of IT marketing in Nigeria, major IT brands Zinox, Acer, HP and Toshiba, embark on direct marketing of single promo to ease out the problems of computer acquisition.

She pointed out that all the bottlenecks, administrative and financial have been deleted and that under the umbrella of the Computerize Nigeria Project, ACER, HP, Toshiba, and Zinox are offering to computer users, prices hitherto unmatched for high quality and durable laptops, beginning from N55,000.00, listing other consumer benefits to include no bank guarantees, thus bringing an end to the tedious documentation and rigmarole that have frustrated many citizens.

Laptop users, she said, would easily enjoy value for money whether they pay in cash or take advantage of the flexible payment terms, with interests below bank prevailing rates. “The major objective of this road show is to bring IT equipment with favourable terms of purchase and juicy ownership benefits to the doorsteps of our target – this time workers at all levels of human endeavour in Nigeria,” she said.
