NACOSS commends Zinox over DDC

Leo-Stan Ekeh, Chairman, Zinox Group
The Executive Council of the National Association of Computer Science Students (NACOSS) has commended the leadership of Zinox Group for its performance in 2011, even as the student body partners Zinox.

Confirming this, the Communication Advisor to Zinox Group, Mr. Echika Ezuka in a press statement made available to ITRealms Online, said this was the outcome of the recent courtesy visit to the headquarters of Zinox Technologies Limited.

He quoted the National President, NACOSS, Adanigbo Oluwasanmi Segun as saying they were in Zinox to build understanding and cooperation in the interest of the Information Communications Technology sector.

Adanigbo said that the purpose of the visit was to put on record that NACOSS appreciate the achievements of Zinox Technologies in 2011, especially by saving the face of Nigeria during the last year’s general election and registration of voters nationwide.

Also, he said that the successful supply of 80,000 Direct Data Capturing (DDC) machines early in 2011 to serve as technology backbone for the voters’ registration exercise was a triumph for all Information Technology (IT) professionals in the country.

That project, according to NACOSS president, drew national and global attention to the growing capacities of the IT professional in Nigeria.

NACOSS, he said, was proud that a Nigerian company performed better than the other foreign companies who were also contracted to supply some of the machines.

The NACOSS President said that on the strength of that performance, he was not surprised that Leo Stan Ekeh, emerged the IT personality of the year 2011 at the National Information Technology Merit Award (NITMA) organized by NCS last year.

Adanigbo informed the Zinox team that NACOSS was involved in the training of its members, adding that that NACOSS organizes hands on workshops to help students to become more familiar with the equipments of their trade.

Receiving the NACOSS team-led by Adanigbo, chairman of Zinox Group, Dr. Leo-Stan Ekeh, congratulated the new executive for their successful election and transition, even as expressed satisfaction that NACOSS has overcome its administrative challenges and now united under one executive body.

The Zinox Chairman also applauded the students’ body for the active role that NACOSS has continued to play in the affairs of the Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) and in the industry.
