The Ministry of Science and Technology of Nigeria has designed an ICT programme, which packages science curricula in software for school children.
The government is planning to expand the scope of its computer for all Nigerian programme by subsidizing the cost of computer for making it affordable to all Nigerians. The Edo state government has appealed the Ministry to support the state's pilot scheme for the setting up of computer laboratories in designated secondary schools in the state. The scheme aims to raise awareness of the next generation of leaders through the acquisition of requisite information technology. The Ministry is also procuring laboratory equipment from Science Equipment Development Institute in Minna for secondary schools and tertiary institutions in the state. The Chief Information Officer of the Ministry, Abdulganiyu Aminu stated that the young children are well-placed to grasp the computer technology bit faster than the adults.
