CNP 750,000 promo enters phase 2

The phase 2 of the Computerize Nigeria Project (CNP) 750,000 computer ownership promo has commenced.

Head, Computerize Nigeria Project, Mrs Loretta Agbakoba, said the phase of the promo would now run till the end of March 31, 2010.

As said by her, the promo, which was supposed to end on December 31, 2009, has been extended primarily to heed the call from well meaning academics that the promo be extended to the first quarter of 2010 to make up for the duration of the ASUU strike.

She stressed that ASUU strike added a couple of months to the academic year and it would be beneficial to parents, students and academic institutions for the promo to power the beginning of a new semester while corresponding with the take off of a new Federal budget.

The extension, therefore, she said, would also serve the hunger of Nigerians who are desperate for knowledge tools.

She explained that the Phase 2 of the 750,000 Computer Ownership Promo is embedded with the incredible benefit of a Zinox e-learning suite worth N62,000 free for one year and a free Zinox digi lamp to enhance reading in a country where blackouts have become a norm.

Recalling that the e-learning suite was developed in partnership between Zinox and World elibrary and is currently number 1 in Africa and contains 750,000 e-books downloadable in any PC; that is 59,000 medical e-documents and e-books; 11,000 classic literature e-books; 1,000 Chemistry e-books, 500 Mathematics e-books; 250 Physics e-books; and 680,000 e-books more. The suite also contains Physics simulation tools, Creative, Observation, and Skills Development Tools, Teacher Lessons Plans, Worksheets, and Classroom Articles.

The e-learning suite, she further said, holds a lot of promise for educational institutions who want to be rated among the world’s best and Governments who wish to accelerate the pace towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and the vision 202020.

Equally she explained that participation is open to all Nigerians and employers may take advantage of the promo to computerize their staff simply by issuing an employer’s guaranty.

“No bank guarantees are required. All the frustrating documentation that have hitherto made Computer Ownership schemes tedious and unpleasant have been clipped off,” she said, pointing out that all a prospect needs is to decide whether to pay the very low cash prices or subscribe to the 12 months installment option.

Mrs. Agbakoba elucidated that e-learning suites would be automatic to the 1st 100,000 laptops purchased, while all products would enjoy immediate delivery and the respective manufacturer warranty of the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEMs) such as Zinox, HP, Dell, Toshiba, and Acer.
