Bayelsa State adopts Zinox Whizkid


The Bayelsa State government has adopted the Zinox Whizkid for the secondary school students, teachers and principals in the state.

The state made this adoption through the wife of the Bayelsa State Governor, Mrs. Alanyingi Sylva, in partnership with Zinox Computers, recently.

This is coming as she donated the Zinox Whizkid to secondary school students, teachers and principals in the state.

A press statement from Zinox Technologies, endorsed by the Communication Advisor, Mr. Echika Ezuka, said Zinox Whizkid described as a wisdom bank, is a high-tech computer loaded with about 2,000,000 e-books, 23,000 audio books in MP3 format covering all subjects, and also over 100,000 past simulation questions from JAMB, NECO, WAEC, and Post-UME.

He quoted the Managing Director of Zinox Computers, Mr. Emomine Mukoro commended the First Lady for acting decisively by joining other national efforts to halt the recurring poor performance in JAMB, WAEC, NECO, and Post UME examinations.

Mr. Mukoro commended Mrs. Sylvia for the passion to revive the dwindling reading culture in Nigeria.

Responding, Mrs. Sylva emphasized her belief in the power of knowledge, called on the students to leverage on the opportunity presented to them.

She called on other organizations, corporate bodies, and multi-nationals to support the noble venture which will spread across the State in a drive to conquer the menace of exam failure in schools.

Further, she said that access to these tools of knowledge would most likely nurture a new generation of Bayelsa graduates from secondary schools and eventually result in a more resourceful and confident citizenry.

The House Committee Chairman in the state House of Assembly on Education, Hon. Jonathan Obuebite charged the students to be focused and take advantage of the opportunity presented to them. The Chairman of SUBEB Bayelsa, Barrister White, commended the First Lady for her efforts in improving the educational standard in the state.

The Chairman of Zinox, Leo Stan Ekeh, commenting on the intervention by the wife of the Governor of Bayelsa State, Mrs. Sylva, said that the adoption of the Zinox Whizkid would lead to changes that could be compared to a miracle.

Ekeh explained that as knowledge incubators, Zinox was always developing platforms that would benefit the entire nation. Leo Stan Ekeh said that as a result of the high failure rate in JAMB, NECO WAEC or Post UME, Zinox decided to develop critical content.
