In a speech by the chairperson of World Federation of Engineering Organisation (WFEO) and Women Engineers (WIE), Engineer Joama O Maduka, mentioned that only ten percent of primary school teachers are computer literate. She described that before it was realised that 90% of the primary school teachers are computer illiterate, it was planned that participation of women in economic activities as well as IT application needs to be improved. Alongside it was decided that a Needs Assessment Survey on various women groups will be carried out in Abuja.
The FCT UBEB chairman said five schools in Abuja Municipal Area Council have computer facilities, while 12 junior secondary schools in Abuja are connected to internet facilities with 150 teachers trained out of 5,000 in the past few years. He called for more assistance from other corporate organisations and thanked African WFEO regional office in Nigeria and the Nigerian Society of Engineers for the Abuja Pilot Primary Teachers' IT Training.
