The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has selected 109 primary and secondary schools for beneficiaries of the first phase of the 'Schools, University Access Programme to Digital Lifestyle' project of the Universal Service Provision Fund (USPF).
The project is expected to be completed in the next six months and provide ICT tools to schools. Out of the 109, three schools have been selected from Osun, namely the Odo Otin Grammar School, Okuku, Ansar-UD Deen Primary School Iwo and Community Grammar School, Ipetu-Ile. The digital lifestyle programme is a part of the five-year strategic plan of the fund aimed at extending ICTs access to the rural and underserved areas of the country, mainly through schools. Some of these projects are the Community Communication Centre (CCC), Accelerated Mobile Phone Expansion Project (AMPEP) and National Backbone Infrastructure Project (NBIP).
