CNP targets Nigerians with 1.5m laptops

Computerize Nigeria Project (CNP) has announced that its targeting transition to new decade with 1.5 million laptops promo.

Head, Computerize Nigeria Project, Mrs. Loretta Agbakoba, said that the promo is still running for two reasons, namely because it was designed in part to help provide the appropriate tools for the resumption of the 2010/2011 academic session.
Secondly, she said, the 1.5 million laptops promo was packaged to empower Nigerians to meet the challenges of the second decade of the 21st Century.

She explained that while discounted pricing for the laptops would meet the low budget expectations of parents as their children and wards go back to school, the world-class quality of these systems are suitable for the transition into the decade in which the daunting challenges of the Millennium Development Goals, the MDGs would be achieved.

The promo, she added 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.

The e-learning suite, which Zinox developed in partnership with World e library is currently number 1 in Africa and contains 1,000,000 e-books downloadable in any PC; 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.

Also, she said the suite contains Physics simulation tools, Creative, Observation, and Skills Development Tools, Teacher Lessons Plans, Worksheets, and Classroom Articles.

According to her, the e learning suite 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 20/ 2020.

She further said 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. All a prospect needs do is to decide whether to pay the very low cash prices or subscribe to the 12 months installment option,” she said.
