NDSF 2015: PIN, DSA present prizes to three students

The Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN) and DigitalSENSE Africa (DSA) Friday in Lagos jointly presented three Etisalat Cliqlite e-learning tablets to three students, reports ITRealms.

The presentation was in fulfillment of the promise made by the Executive Director, PIN and Nigeria’s first IT Youth Ambassador, Mr. Gbenga Sesan at the Nigeria DigitalSENSE 2015 Forum on Internet Governance for Development (IG4D) and Internet Protocol Version Six (IPV6) Roundtable in Lagos, recently.

Presenting the award at a brief ceremony that took place at Mafoluku-Lagos, ITRealms reports, the Executive Director, Operations, DigitalSENSE Africa, Mrs. Nkemdilim Nweke said the essence of the DigitalSENSE Forum has been to empower, enlighten and build the capacity of Nigerian youths and women by way of exposing them to the opportunities available on the internet. 

She stated that the essence of this presentation ceremony is to give these tablets out in the presence of the parents and the teachers of the students and also to show that the companies; PIN and DigitalSENSE are for real and that they deliver on their promises. 

Mrs. Nweke also said that the Etisalat Cliqlite is designed to restrict the students to what they need on the internet for now which is basically academics, fortunately this year these children won the tablets. 

She emphasized that the tablet is for empowerment and to enable the children move to another level in life, stressing that Etisalat CIiqlite is a unique tablet to grow the students skills which must be regulated by the parents.

ITRealms reports the three lucky students include Sotayo-Aro Oluwakimilokan, Igweonu Chiamaka Sandra: the two are from Muritala Mohammed Airport Secondary School, Ikeja and Koleola Anuoluwapo from Mafoluku Senior Grammar School. 

PIN Executive Director, Mr. Sesan represented by Adebanbo Gbenga, while presenting one of the awards noted that PIN is reputed for youth empowerment and it was an honour to also collaborate with DigitalSENSE.

Hon. Obafemi Lekan, uncle to Koleola, in an interview with ITRealms expressed happiness that DSA and PIN were able to fulfill their promise. Other witnesses at the prize giving ceremony, ITRealms gathered included Mr. Agba Kingsley, the ICT teacher with Murtala Muhammed Airport Secondary School, Mr. Osuntubo, a teacher from Mafoluku Senior Grammar School.
