Worried about the unstable power supply in the country, the Chief Executive Officer, Zuma Marketing Limited, Mr. Okechukwu Ozoemelam, has appealed to the government to subsidise solar equipment to support the transition to e-learning, which requires constant power supply.

He said the government should also give grants or waivers to providers or distributors of modern teaching aids and other e-learning equipment to make them affordable for schools and other educational institutions.

Ozoemelam, who said this in a chat with journalists in Lagos, said adoption of digital learning is the only way Nigerian schools can avoid knowledge deficit among students, and be in line with 21st century learning.

“Our mission is to digitize the learning environment in Africa by offering the best modern teaching and learning aids designed to help organisations achieve more,” he said.

Emphasising on the LEAD Interactive Display Board, he said it is designed to enhance and maximize the effectiveness of meetings, virtual learning and collaboration within a work environment.
