Computerize Nigeria Project Launches Phase 2 of 750,000 PC Ownership
Computerize Nigeria Project (CNP), has launched the second phase of its 750,000 Computer Ownership promo. According to the Head, Computerize Nigeria Project, Mrs. Loretta Agbakoba, this step is to further the ideals of the digital knowledge democracy.
She explained that the promo is another milestone in the roadmap of the CNP to give Nigerians the opportunity to bridge the digital divide personally, at family and corporate levels. "It is primarily targeted at governments at all levels, educational institutions, and all stakeholders in the Nigerian nation," she said, stressing that based on the success of the first phase, CNP has been in direct negotiations with major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the country like Zinox, Hewlett Packard (HP), Toshiba, Dell, and Acer to secure discounted prices especially for Nigerians in a bid to accelerate access to the IT tools that would catalyze a knowledge driven nation.
The Phase 2 of 750,000 Computer Ownership promo, she said, has been embedded with the benefits of a Zinox e learning suite worth N62,000 free for one year and a free Zinox digi lamp to enhance reading in a country where blackouts have become a norm.
The e-learning suite, which Zinox developed in partnership with World e-library, she noted, is currently number 1 in Africa and contains 750,000 e-books downloadable in any PC; 59,000 medical e- documents and e-books; 11,000 classic literature e-books; 1,000 Chemistry e-books, 500 Mathematics e-books; 250 Physics e-books; and 680,000 e-books more.
"The suite also contains Physics simulation tools, Creative, Observation, and Skills Development Tools, Teacher Lessons Plans, Worksheets, and Classroom Articles. The e learning suite holds a lot of promise for educational institutions who want to be rated among the world's best and Governments who wish to accelerate the pace towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and the vision 20/ 2020," Mrs. Agbakoba said.
The Head CNP, said that participation is open to all Nigerians and employers may take advantage of the promo to computerize their staff simply by issuing an employer's guaranty. "No bank guarantees are required. All the frustrating documentation that hitherto made computer ownership schemes tedious and unpleasant have been clipped off," she said.
Emphasizing that all a prospect needs do is to decide whether to pay the very low cash prices or subscribe to the 12 months installment option. Mrs. Agbakoba explained that the e-learning suites would be automatic to the 1st 100,000 laptops purchased.
"All products would enjoy immediate delivery and the respective manufacturer warranty of the OEMs. She said that the CNP and her OEM Partners would deliver on all their promises. She reiterated that the total package pricing is not available to any other company in Africa and that the CNP would make a refund if better prices were found elsewhere," she said.
